Corruption & Cholera

Chris Floyd writes:

In a remarkably short amount of time, the conventional wisdom of America's media-political class has embraced the idea that George W. Bush's escalation of the Iraq war in 2007 has been a success.

This highly dubious notion- based on nothing but the fact that the horrific murder rate spawned by Bush's act of aggression has momentarily abated to previous levels of savagery that were once considered catastrophic- now serves as the basic assumption of the debate about the Iraq war, especially among the punditry and out on the campaign trail.

But on the ground in Iraq, where some good reporting still filters through the white noise machine of the corporate media, the picture is much different.
