    i'm always skeptical of anonymous accounts like this. but juan cole saw fit to post it, and that should say something.

    Professor Cole's comments give credence to the ever worsening quagmire unfolding there. Bush might as well make a stop at the Pentagon where he can force one of his patented nervous smirks, then look to his left at Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld and say, "Donny, you're doing a heckuva job implementing our military strategy in Iraq."

    Why is it called the Green Zone if it's not safe? I thought that was the whole point of naming it the Green Zone?

    No, no, it's green because it's the only place in Baghdad you can run a lawn sprinkler.
