Peace is not no violence
Bush once said: "Success [in Iraq] is not no violence". In the movie Air Force One the President played by Harrison Ford said: "Peace is not the absence of terror but the presence of justice." So how come the new republican slogan "the surge is working" fails to note that nothing can work in Iraq without the presence of a working political system? How can there be peace and justice in Iraq if they're still fighting over who gets how big a peace of the oilpie? Furthermore, what in the world is the surge going to do about that?
