Pentagon: Iraqi Violence Still Rising

Okay. Doesn't this mean the surge has failed and its time to bring the troops home? Not if you are a wannabe King and occupy the White House:
Violence in Iraq, as measured by casualties among troops and civilians, has edged higher despite the U.S.-led security push in Baghdad, the Pentagon told Congress on Wednesday.

In its required quarterly report on security, political and economic developments in Iraq, covering the February-May period, the Pentagon also raised questions about Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's ability to fulfill a pledge made in January to prohibit political interference in security operations and to allow no safe havens for sectarian militias.

It will be interesting to see if the Republicans in the Senate, like that idiot McCain, will insist that we give it more time:
Wednesday's broader report, the eighth in a series, said that while violence fell in the capital and in Anbar province west of Baghdad during the February-May period, it increased in other areas, particularly in the outlying areas of Baghdad province and in Diyala province northeast of Baghdad and in the northern province of Nineva.

Its time to wag the dog; time to bomb Iran. That will come within the next 3 months. Because a gambler in denial has to throw more money away after losing his life savings. Sound like anyone?
