About @#$@#()$&* Time.

We are apparently, as this is being written, reminding the Ba'ath party regulars what execrable pieces of cow dung they are. We have launched a "massive attack" against strongholds around Saddam's hometown. This is the result of dramatically better intelligence on our part, which came about through patient aerial surveillance and the cooperation of the many Iraqis who are perfectly happy that Saddam is gone. So evidently we have identified the location of many cells that have been wreaking damage, and our boys are teaching them yet again that good old American know-how actually can beat most anything it comes against. It's news so fresh, the Post hasn't even put it up on their website yet.

Good luck and Godspeed boys.

In an excellent column last week, Brendan Miniter of the Wall Street Journal blasted the press for not reporting that we are counterattacking for every attack on our troops or our allies. And--such is the reach of the Journal--since then reporters have been more honest. And a recent, very thorough report, by Anthony Cordesman of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, confirms that the opponents of freedom have not yet found supporters outside the famed "Sunni Triangle."

This is obviously the second leg of the new strategy announced last week, and it seems like just what the doctor ordered. The Iraqi people want to get on with their lives, and those who want a return to the old days need to be silenced, whatever it tatakes.

The regrettable editorial in the very same Journal last Thursday essentially proclaiming that Donald Rumsfeld has achieved the status of infallible seer will not be the object of an extended rebuttal by this writer. I know that the worthies who run that invaluable newspaper are sitting on the edge of their seats waiting. The aforementioned Dr. Cordesman has just produced 70 turgid, horribly written, but enlightening pages which those worthies would do well to digest. This writer is going to dedicate a few paragraphs to each day's blog to dissecting that regrettable editorial, but he will need to digest Dr. Kordesman's worthy report as he goes along.

In the meantime, Dr. Cordesman, the worthies at the Journal, and A Mind That Suits all agree on one thing: give those bastards hell!
