Thought of the Day
The new strategy of George W Bush in Iraq will fail. I am putting this in writing to be able to return to it in the future and say: I told you so. What will happen is that the resistance fighters and terrorists will lie low in the face of additional U.S. troops because they know that the American presence will not continue forever. So there will be an initial lull which Bush will translate as success. The end will be quite different. Mark my word and hold me to it.
