"Violence getting worse"


Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld said in a radio interview today that the violence in Iraq was "getting worse" and would probably continue until the Iraqi elections scheduled for January.

"We do expect that the incidents of violence in both Afghanistan and Iraq between now and the elections will very likely increase and that these dead-enders will try to see if they can prevent it from happening," he said in the interview, according to a transcript released by his office.

Insisting on calling these people "dead enders" makes clear that Rumsfeld has no idea who we're fighting and how to battle against them. Nevertheless, at least he is showing a modicum more honesty than his boss.
