After hearing about how Iraq will be another Vietnam-like quagmire, February had the lowest number of coalition casualties of the conflict, and commanders continue to note that the overall number of attacks continues to decrease.
This isn’t surprising – by November we had killed most of the terrorist cannon fodder and the smarter ones were pulling off the more successful attacks during that month – except they were captured, killed, or detonated themselves.
As Abu Zarqawi noted, the resistance in Iraq is failing badly. They can’t people willing to die for the cause of putting the Iraqi people back in chains, they haven’t been able to incite the civil war they wanted to, and the last handful of Ba’athists are being hunted down like the animals they are.
Just don’t expect the media to note it.
