More Progress in Iraq

Rockets hit the Green Zone, the most secure place in the world:
The shelling sent thick plumes of dark gray smoke over central Baghdad and ignited a spectacular fire on the banks of the Tigris River. It ushered in a day of violence that claimed the lives of four American soldiers and at least 58 lraqis around the country.

American military officials said the soldiers were killed by a homemade bomb about 10 p.m. as they patrolled southern Baghdad in a vehicle, pushing the number of American service members killed in Iraq closer to 4,000. Another soldier was wounded in the attack.

The intensity of the violence added to the sense that insurgent and sectarian attacks had been on the rise in recent weeks.

So let me get this straight...Even though civilian and military fatalities have decreased drastically over the last year, any recognition of progress will be disregarded if the "SENSE that insurgent and sectarian attacks have been on the rise in recent WEEKS?"

If so, perhaps Jimmy Carter should return his Nobel Peace Prize since suicide bombers didn't exactly disappear in Israel after he received his award. And should Rosa Parks be disregarded for her role as a civil rights pioneer since racial injustices can still be found in a post-civil rights legislation America?
