Baghdad Plus One

People wonder if Iraq is getting out of control. Are the worriers just Nervous Nellies, or are things crashing?

I may wait a few weeks to decide.


It's easy to get swept up in bad news. Any bad news. Gasoline's going to hit 3 bucks. Easter Sunday is gonna be miserably cold and rainy. We're falling apart in Iraq.

It's almost funny how often the stuff that actually happens isn't what we were afraid would happen. Worry about A, and B happens.

We have tough, smart, dedicated and very capable people in Iraq. They can handle whatever. Any Iraqi faction that takes one step forward will be scurrying two or three backward before long.

Gas won't be 3 bucks. Easter Sunday may surprise us yet. And on the first anniversary of the Fall of Baghdad, we're not falling apart in Iraq.
