We're Toast

I'm sorry, but this is much larger than 5 people killed, 7 wounded:

A fierce gunbattle near a mosque in the holy Shiite city of Karbala continued Friday, after three U.S. military police and two Iraqi police were killed by a previously unknown faction, according to coalition officials.

Five U.S. military police and two Iraqi police were wounded in the attack, which involved rocket-propelled grenades and AK-47 gunfire, U.S. Maj. Ralph Manos said.

Unknown faction, Shia fighting each matter how you slice it I think this is the beginning of the end of the low-level conflict/occupation. Our 3 month window is closing rapidly, Ramadan is approaching, and we still haven't delivered on our promises to the Iraqi people. Bush can try his end around the media "filter" play all he wants, tout capturing 40 odd of the Deck of Cards officials, brag about the new currency and all these little things. It doesn't mean squat. Let's get the hell out of dodge before we really do have a Tet on our hands.
