Jim Henley has mixed feelings about the war and where it currently stands.
A quick tour through the Op-Ed page of the Post today. The situation on the ground is fluid, as the triumph of the war per se slides seamlessly into the chaos of victory. It's great to see statues of tyrants topple and read fragmentary reports of children being freed from prison (assuming we didn't simply liberate a reform school). It's sobering to read stories of mob murder and the third known suicide bombing of American troops since the war began.
The third known suicide attack is, I believe, the fourth overall. The first was, of course, against Australian cameraman Paul Moran. But since Paul Moran was merely an Australian cameraman and not American Troops, we don't need to give a shit about him, obviously.
