A Possible Pause


Reuters reports, “U.S. commanders have ordered a pause of four to six days in a northward push toward Baghdad because of supply shortages and stiff Iraqi resistance, U.S. military officers said on Saturday.” The Pentagon is denying the story. If a pause ends up being ordered, what do you bet that the same people who have been saying that coalition forces have advanced too fast, and supply lines have grown too long, will then say that the halt is evidence of a developing quagmire?
