Cognitive Dissonance

On the increasing attacks against American forces in Iraq - now numbering between 25 and 30 per day - Paul Bremer III had these two things to say:

"There are going to be increased attacks and increased terrorism because the terrorists can see the reconstruction dynamic is moving in our direction,"

- and -

"Unless our intelligence gets better, we're going to have a problem," he added, seemingly conceding that coalition forces were at a disadvantage coming to grips with the Iraqi insurgents.
I guess he means that the better things get, the worse they will become. I'm sure that will really help to improve morale of the troops already there and especially of those being mustered for deployment early next year.
