The current uprising in Iraq is the answer to President Bush's "bring it on" remark. As such, the current fighting is welcome. How much better for the future of Iraq to deal with these scum now, while the U.S. military is on hand, than leave them to fester and subvert Iraqi democracy in the cradle.
The main problem our Armed Forces have with our enemies in Iraq is finding them. Since these Islamist and Saddam-ite "militiamen" are now coming out of hiding, they will be in the right position for our boys to kill them.
Pretty, no. Better than the status-quo ante, yes. Bring it on.
