The Next Left
It is two years to the day since Bush's flight-suit "mission accomplished" theatrics. And despite all the smoke and mirrors, the horrible situation the neocons created continues. Over this weekend alone, violence in Iraq claimed more than 100 lives:
American and Iraqi officials hoped the formation of a new government last Thursday would dampen the insurgency and reassure Iraqis. Instead, insurgents have launched coordinated attacks that American officials describe as a clear effort to undermine and challenge the confidence and authority of the new government. Since Friday, more than 100 Iraqis have been killed and 200 more have been wounded.
