Inspiration and strength

I had just had a conversation with a fellow employee in which he'd cited Colin Powell's statement from yesterday, trumpeted in the press;
Secretary of State Colin Powell sees the situation in Iraq "getting worse" as planned elections approach, and the top U.S. military commander for Iraq says he expects more violence ahead.

And so the violence is getting worse. The major news networks choose to broadcast that and downplay what the stakes are and what progress is and has been made in Iraq.

We must look at Iraq with clear eyes and see that yes, the job is difficult and ugly. But that's what the bad guys are hoping will break our will. Mudville Gazette sees the eyes of the undefeated.
