'Mission Accomplished?'

'Mission Accomplished,' indeed. From The New York Times (subscription rqd):

"A suicide car bomber drove into a line of about 400 volunteers for the
Iraqi National Guard and police force today in Hilla, south of Baghdad, killing
at least 122 people and wounding at least 170
, an official at the Interior
Ministry said."

I heard a news report that had an Iraqi spokesman claiming this was a last gasp of the insurgency. They have been saying that all year. Even with the arrest of Saddam's half-brother, I don't see how the hell these attacks are going to end. How do you reach out to people that see no future or have no hope or are full of hate, or worse, all three?
