The Observer reports today that Donald Rumsfeld has now realised that the US is failing in Iraq.
Has he come to this decision because he was sacked, did he hold this opinion before he was sacked or is it that now he has lost his job, he wants to expose Bush for being a pillock with his head in the sand ?
What ever the answer, it is amaxing that it takes Rumsfeld to lose his job before he can see something as startlingly obvious.
The big question is what do they do now in Iraq ? I cannot see a solution other than the country splitting in to three. Not the answer that anyone wants, but it might be the only solution.
