Disillusioned commentary on Australian financial sector, politics, business, media... with attention occasionally distracted to the world outside... and intermittent reminder that rage is a more life-conserving irrationality than despair.

So that's all right, then

This one nearly passed us by... AP report on Friday:

The number-two Pentagon official said yesterday reducing American casualties in Iraq was more important than bringing United States troops home - and pointed to the rising Iraqi death toll as evidence that the American strategy was working.

"I'm more concerned with bringing down our casualties than bringing down our numbers," Deputy Defence Secretary Paul Wolfowitz said in an interview with PBS television's The NewsHour.

"And it is worth saying that since June 1, there have been more Iraqi police and military killed in action than Americans."

The sight of Freedom being Spread is a glorious sight indeed. Its colours seem to contain a lot of red.
