The World Today

The always enlightening Thomas Friedman has some interesting commentary on Fallujah in his latest op-ed for the Times.

You know, I have to say that this week has had more good news about world politics than any I can remember in the last four years. It looks like the Army & Marine Corps will be able to secure Fallujah without heavy casualties, it looks like a non-fascist will be running the Justice Department and it looks like a non-relic will be running the PLO.

All of these observations have caveats (e.g. the explosion of violence in the rest of Iraq) but at least there's something to be optimistic about.
