Mr. Vidiot has a few good questions.posted by The Vidiot @ 7:47 AM Permalink When they speak of "progress in Iraq", what exactly are they saying? How is progress measured? In deaths? In oil? In Iraqi submission? Progress for who? The Iraqis? Are less of them being killed? Are they killing each other and not the soldiers? Progress for the U.S.? Are fewer of our soldiers getting hurt? Does progress mean we're furthering democracy? Really? What is democracy exactly, to an Iraqi? And when they poll Americans asking "do you think we're making progress in Iraq?" and 60% of them say "yes", do they really know what they're talking about? Who are they asking? Why do they think those people know what progress is? I don't know what progress is, how do they? Because they watch the media? Does the media really know what progress is or are they just parroting what the Administration is saying?
What the hell does "progress" actually mean?
These are things I'd like to understand.
