What are you all’s thoughts on Third Fallujah? If you have been reading this blog for the last few years, you will know I am not surprised, and looking at the NSA cameras (that little circle at the top of your laptop) you don’t seem too shocked either. But then, no one ever went broke being pessimistic about Iraq.
I am hearing differing accounts of exactly who is being attacked, and by whom. David Ignatius is selling scorecards today. What was that they used to shout at Fenway? Something like, "Scorecards! You can’t tell the players without the card!" Apparently, the Iranians are on first and second, and their old Badr Corps buddies are driving the team bus.
