Giving Condie babe the benefit of the doubt,

Maybe she meant they are losing steam [power]
and changing over the internal combustion engine or nuclear power?

I guess some of that embezzled 9 billion dollars in Iraq is paying off pretty hansomely for the insurgents.

But, on the other hand...
Insurgency could get worse: Rumsfeld

US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld warned today that violence in Iraq could worsen, comparing insurgents to desperate Nazi SS officers and Japanese kamikaze pilots at the end of World War II.

Insurgents were desperate to stop political progress in Iraq, Mr Rumsfeld said, following one of the bloodiest weeks for US forces since the US-led invasion in 2003.
"I think it's reasonable to expect that violence could, again, increase for a time, as it did during the last elections," Mr Rumsfeld said, looking ahead to a referendum on a new constitution in October and elections in December.

"As allied forces (pushed) forward in both the European and Pacific theatres in World War II, the enemy's tactics, such as the cult of death among SS forces and the kamikazes in the Pacific, led to some of the bloodiest fighting of that war," Mr Rumsfeld said.

"But those deadly acts, and they were deadly, proved not to be harbingers of victory."

Mr Rumsfeld cautioned that observers should not "draw the wrong conclusion" over any spike in violence.

I tell you what when it comes to Codi, Rumsfeld and Cheney they have no clue what in the heck is going on in Iraq.

Or. . .they can not sit down all together and put the facts in order.

This is pure garbage, in fact we are ordering more troops in because of security concerns with the upcomming unveiling of the new Iraqi Constitution, this on the tail of one of the bloodiest days since the occupation began. Whats actually happening is that the Bu#es are starting to pay attention to the recent polls showing that most americans now think that their administration is full of crap.
