Circular Is So Round...

Yesterday, in Washington, Petraeus took a stab at an explanation. And in Baghdad, the Los Angeles Times reports, so did the U.S. military command, known as Multinational Forces Iraq, to combat the accusation that it's cooking the books to exaggerate the success of the surge. However, it's not exactly clear what that methodology tells us:
Stung by accusations that Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, the commander of U.S. troops in Iraq, had presented selective statistics during his testimony before Congress, the military released a statement here outlining its definition of sectarian violence: bombings, killings or other attacks committed by an ethnic group or religious sect against another, for purely sectarian purposes.
That seems a little circular.

But Circular is So Round!!!

And Round things rotate! And Rotation is Revolutionary, so of Course the Surge Is Surgtastical!!! Because it is Round, Rotating and Revolutionary!!!

Ah yes, the progress of it all....
