New Day Backward Forward
Another day, another lie
We've got 'em on the run, all right, all right. Ooooo, they're really scared now:

While the military has maintained that al Qaeda is on the run in Iraq, by any number of measures the terror group and its affiliates are as strong as ever, and June was the most violent month since the start of the war, a senior U.S. military official told ABC News.

"Despite our successes in taking out leaders and infrastructure," said the official, "al Qaeda's operational capability appears to be undiminished." [...]

Well, at least overall violence has been down. That's what they told us, right?

ABC News has learned the most recent military intelligence assessment of Iraq also shows that the overall level of violence in the country -- measured as the number of "violent incidents" -- hit its highest level in June since the war began. [...]

The number of attacks on U.S. soldiers is way up, now accounting for 70 percent of all attacks in Iraq.


While violence has dropped dramatically in Anbar Province, the number of attacks has risen sharply in four other provinces: Baghdad, Salahaddin, Diyala and Basra.

In June, there were a record 55 attacks with Iranian-made roadside bombs -- called explosively formed penetrators. This is the deadliest form of roadside bomb seen in Iraq.

Mortar attacks on the Green Zone have dramatically increased.

Bush's "new way forward".

Sweetie, could you please use a larger font? I can barely read your entries.

Aww, sorry, JANB! I use a larger one for my own words, and tend to use a smaller one for the block quotes, to save space.

I'll be happy to use the same size for both. Can you read the black font? That's the larger size. You're the second one who has mentioned this, and I want to do what I can to help.
