Slow, inexorable slide to failure

30 Die in Iraq:

One day after Mr. Maliki predicted that American and British troops would be able to withdraw from all but two provinces by the year's end, Bush administration officials repeatedly tried Tuesday to tamp down expectations that major troop withdrawals could occur quickly.
"You can't do it too fast," General Ham said. "We've talked some about rushing to failure, and we've got to be very careful to not do that."

Yes, it gives me great joy (oh, joy!) to see their failure dragged out. Besides, we haven't had enough carnage, yet.
