Losing hope

I frequently visit the Al Bawaba political forums to have some flame war fun and test the mood of the "Arab street" so to speak.

The Arab street is demoralized.

The fall of Fallujah in a week has demoralized them.

Normally you see a lot of "God is great" posts and the "Americans are losing" and "the great Arab fighters will hand the Marines a bloody nose."

It is true the Marines have gotten a bloody nose. Unfortunately to accomplish this great feat of arms the "insurgents" needed to take a knife in the belly.

I do believe the election of Bush and the fall of Fallujah has taken the starch out of the enemy. I do not believe they are ready for this. I do not think they are ready for relentless.

Not at all.
