Underestimicating Iraq
And everything else.

'Someday soon, Bush will have to give a major speech on Iraq, because the country he talked about in Monday night's speech doesn't look at all like it. And he seems determined not to notice.'

Crucially, in the Iraq George Bush sees when he closes his eyes -- which seems to be the way he sees the country -- he can give just about the same speech he would give a year ago, with minimal mention of anything turning out differently than expected. The president sees this attitude as being resolute. To others, it looks like being oblivious.

Oh, and our troops in Iraq are running out of bullets.
