US troops to stay longer in Iraq: "He also traced a 'common thread' between Sunni gunmen in Falluja and Mr Sadr's Shia militants.
'The common thread is... to stop progress in Iraq,' he said, accusing militants in both communities of seeking to destroy the country's new institutions.

Can't get it out of my head that the way the US insists that people are "avoiding progress" is kind of like the way people in sci-fi films who have been taken over by aliens insist to those that haven't that "once it's done, you'll wonder what all the fuss was about - my mind is so calm now".
