    Not that I'm surprised, but that great thing, apparently, about any new tactic is that any result from it can be claimed as a sign of success.

    Meanwhile, the war is bloodier than ever. More US troops have died in the last last seven months than died in any previous seven month period. Since August 2006, there have been nine straight months averaging at least 2 US military deaths per day. The previous record was seven months. So far in April 35 US troops have been killed in 8 days.

    Success!

    The fact that more troops are dying is just a sign that we are succeeding and the enemy is getting desperate... that's what we've heard for years from the likes of Cheney and Rumsfeld. So casualties up - we're winning! Casualties down - we're winning! Why not skip any analysis of the situation, and simply agree that no matter what - we're winning! Finally, the administration has figured out a surefire way to success. Hurrah! God Bless America! Success is assured!
