Courtesy of Rising Hegemon, this exchange from last night's Bill O'Reilly Rant between Bill and retired Air Force Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney:
Bill: Insurgent attacks on a daily basis have almost doubled from 2004 to 2005. What does that say?
The General: It says that the terrorists, the insurgents, are fighting even harder because they know they are losing.
So it looks like that's the official Rovewellian position on things; as long as the insurgents keep fighting, they're losing, and the harder they fight, the worse they're losing.
Let's hope they never stop fighting, huh?
McInerny, by the way, was co-author of a 2004 campaign monograph titled "How We Won in Afghanistan."
Yes, Virginia, irony is still dead.
