Insurgency In Its Last Throes?

I just reviewed the Brookings Institution’s report on the “progress” in Iraq. It paints a sad story about the violence in Iraq and how poor the situation is right now.

It didn’t have to be this bad. In all the various charts the BI have in their report, all the numbers that should be going down are actually going up, more deaths, more violence, etc. And the most telling number is found in the number of insurgents. the latest number has them at 20,000+. the plus (+) is key, since it wasn’t used before in their chart. They’ve estimated that as of April 2006, the insurgency is at its greatest strength.

Last throes? Hardly.
