Something must break now
everything that keeps us together is falling part
They sang protest songs to try to stop the soldier...
ooh baby it's a wild world
I'm not here, this isn't happening
Now it's raining hard as ever
i spent the rent
We don't incredible-hulk no more, we don't do none...
every bent knee too shall break

Instead of moving that, nope, you need to re-up:
Awesome new co-worker Colin Soloway and I were talking about this at the office yesterday. This Baghdad neighborhood that the U.S. has been bombing? That's Arab Jabour, a place cited by General Petraeus and the White House as a surge success story. Luckily, Jamie Gumbrecht and Nancy Youssef of McClatchy are on top of it:
The targets were near the town of Arab Jabour, a Sunni Muslim-dominated district on Baghdad's outskirts that American officials recently held up as a security success and an example of how local Sunni tribesmen known as "concerned local citizens" had turned against al Qaida in Iraq.
Forty thousand pounds of bombs. It's counterinsurgency-rific! And goddamn it, why can't Gumbrecht and Youssef acknowledge that the surge succeeded????//
