So Far, So Good

An early assessment of insurgent activity around Baghdad over the last month shows an 80% decrease in the number of attacks.  These are the early stages of the new plan, as both General Petraeus and Secretary of State Gates note, but the early signs are good.  Every time some new tactic or event comes along, the attacks drop off until our enemies adjust.  I think they should have elections all the time in Iraq– every time they do the number of attacks go down!  I’m also in the camp that wants to see us win, so I’m cautiously taking this as good news.  I understand the insurgents will regroup and the Shi’ite militias are forming up again south of Baghdad, but they’re on the run this time, not us.
