Good News?

The Pentagon, the CentCom leadership in Iraq and the al-Maliki Government are trumpeting the news that the level of violence and the killings in Iraq have gone down, and therefore some of the troops that went over as the "Surge" earlier this year can now be rotated home.

This is all very good news.

Now, if it were only true ...

You see, the troops would have to start coming home now anyway, as part of their standard rotation schedule. As for the level of violence going down, well, the al-Maliki Government, CentCom and the Pentagon have about as much credibility now as any other branch office of the Bushite Junta.

Which is to say, None At All.
