What the hell is going on?

We’re spending a billion dollars a week, but our troops have to use confiscated Kalashnikovs because we don’t have enough rifles to go around. We’ve reopened Saddam’s main political prison and we’re hiring members of his secret police.

And of course there’s the escalating terrorism, not to mention the fact that ethnic tensions are reaching a boiling point in Northern Iraq.

How much more success can we stand?
