 New estimates on Iraqi resistance

The Associate Press is reporting that the Iraq insurgency is larger than previously thought.

Larger than who thought? CIA estimates ranged up to 50,000. Other US intelligence agencies warned Bush administration policymakers before the war in Iraq that there would be significant armed opposition.

The developing view of the insurgency contrasts with the commonly stated view in the Bush administration that the fighting is fueled by foreign warriors intent on creating an Islamic state: "We're not at the forefront of a jihadist war here," said a US military official in Baghdad, speaking on condition of anonymity. The official and others told the AP that the guerrillas have enough popular support among nationalist Iraqis angered by the presence of US troops that they cannot be militarily defeated.

Any NeoCons reading this? I would love to hear your suggestions for fixing your mess....
