Surprise, Surprise, Surprise

For the one person I know who reads this (Hi Steve!), the title could refer to the fact that I am actually posting something. However, this refers to the surprise visit that Pres. Bush made to Iraq today. I've noticed that anyone of any import who visits Iraq tends to do it on a "surprise" basis: Rumsfeld, Rice, Hastert, Cheney, Tony Blair, assorted governors, and even Denmark's prime minister (Kerry forgot Poland, so don't feel bad about forgetting about Denmark).

It seems the only people who make planned visits to Iraq are the soldiers we keep sending over there.
