Oh Goody

MSNBC reports:
Wednesday, U.S. military officials conceded that, far from broken, the insurgents are actually getting better at devising new, more efficient methods of killing.

"A very, very sophisticated enemy — an enemy that does not have a conscience," says Maj. Gen. Stephen Speakes, deputy commander for operations of the Third Infantry Division.

While abstaining from commenting on the conscientiousness with which this invasion was exacted—ahem, shock and awe—I will remind said U.S. military officials that, according to Commander Codpiece, our mission was supposedly accomplished long ago. Me, now I would have thought that part of our mission was quelling insurgency, as opposed to allowing it to mature and improve, but then again, I’m no military expert.
