    "*** And here's an interesting note from Ann Coulter:

    "The U.S. military has had considerably more success in turning Iraq around than liberals have had in turning the ghettos around with their 40-year 'War on Poverty.' So far, fewer troops have been killed by hostile fire since the end of major combat in Iraq than civilians were murdered in Washington, D.C., last year (239 deaths in Iraq compared to 262 murders in D.C.). How many years has it been since we declared the end of major U.S. combat operations against Marion Barry's regime? How long before we just give up and pull out of that hellish quagmire known as Washington, D.C.?"



    *** Columnist Tom Friedman, always a source of laughs, believes the U.S. is doing important work in Iraq. "Nation building," he calls it. He seems to believe the U.S. military can build a model society - to his specifications - in a country thousands of miles away populated by hostile desert tribes, where he doesn't speak the language, understand the local culture, the history, or the local cuisine...and where a man can't even get a decent drink. We wish him well. If he succeeds, he can launch an attack on Washington next."
