The McCain escalation

"But we have also made, in recent weeks, measurable progress in establishing security in Baghdad and fighting al Qaeda in Anbar province." - Maverick McCain, yesterday

Reality, today: a bombing in the Green Zone -
Explosion at Iraq parliament cafe BBC 04/12/07; Al menos dos diputados muertos y 10 heridos en un atentado suicida en el Parlamento iraquí El Mundo 12.04.07; Explosion hits Iraq's parliament Aljazeera 04/11/07.

Of course, by the administration's logic, a decrease in attacks is a sign of progress, and an increase in attacks is a sign of the enemy's desperation and therefore also a sign of progress. There's just no end of progress in this war!
