Shorter National Intelligence Estimate
Two words say it all: We're fucked.
Well, and the Iraqis too, but we already knew that. They've been fucked since the day the bombs started falling in 2003. Ah well, at least given the insurgents' recent success in shooting down American helicopters, we aren't going to see any Saigon moment out of this war. No helicopters taking off from the roof of the American Embassy with frantic people hanging off the skids. Nope. More a Dien Bien Phu moment. Complete with shot-down aircraft crashing out of the sky, except choppers rather than C-47's this time.

It was a pretty good 300 year run, don't you think?
Hey, it was just an experiment, don't sweat it.
From the ashes will rise better. It's always been that way.
