    I can't emphasize how good this episode of Frontline is. Check your local listings for repeats this week or watch it online after Friday.

    If you don't view this you will be doing yourself a serious disservice.

    For those of us who can't stay up that late, can you give a synopsis?

    You can stream the program from the web site.

    My summary: Insurgency is alive and strong. It is growing stronger. The nature of insurgency has changed dramatically by the Islamic Jihadists who have taken over from the nationalistic Baathists. A civil war is very possible and likely.

    Ok, I will watch it. (I think Frontline is pretty fair minded as well.)

    No, Im not.

    I watched it tonight. They get input from a lot of people on the ground (I particularly liked the comments by the Army Col. concerning how our men and the Iraqi army are fighting the insurgents.)

    A couple points came to mind:

    - It's clear we can't just pull out of Iraq.

    - Even a phase out removal might be viewed as a victory by the insurgency (as was pointed out after the Marines were told to leave Fallujah).

    - It's interesting how the calm during the elections was explained. From over here in the U.S., I heard it was because of our troops on the ground. In the Frontline piece, it seems that the Baathists and Shiites both wanted to vote and get involved in the political process, even though they were 100% on board with it.

    - Even with all the progress and sacrifice we have made in Iraq, I wonder if democracy can ever be sustained long term in that region of the world.

    You probably think the Christian Science Monitor is liberally biased as well.

    If one feels Frontline is biased, there's no limit to what they would hang that shingle on. So I would say that's a fair assumption about you given your statement.

    I got it...

    Anyone who doesn't agree with me is biased.
