More Bad News from Baghdad

Despite new roadblocks and stepped up patrols in Baghdad this week, the violence there continues unabated. According to press reports today, more than 1,ooo Iraqis have been killed in the last 10 days.

The President assures us that his troop increase will work, given some time. He may be right. But given the bombings and kidnappings of the past few days, it's hard to be optimistic.
