Nearly 1,000 insurgent and sectarian attacks were carried out against American and Iraqi targets every week over the last three months, the highest level ever recorded, according to a Pentagon report on security trends in Iraq that was issued Monday.That last was a compound sentence, and the "while" messed up the impact.

The rise in attacks, to a weekly average of 959, was a jump of nearly 200 compared with the previous three months.

-- which we have deliberately created -- offers a perfect pretext.
We have never been interested in winning, nor in having a short war. We've only been interested in getting entangled in something so awful that we have no choice but to to stay there and make sure it doesn't get any worse.

If you believe we can keep it from getting worse without leaving, I have a bridge to sell you.
If we can keep it from getting worse at all, the only way we can do so is by leaving. And the sooner the better.
