In an attempt to correct a rare mistyping (can the Medium Lobster mistype?) resulting in the substitution of "jumped by" for "jumped to," the original post was consumed in its entirety by Blogger, a dark and fearsome transgalactic entity in its own right whose dark will and powers frequently find themselves at odds with my own. At any rate, the Medium Lobster invites all to attend to the International Institute for Strategic Studies, and most notably the Strategic Survey 2003/4 - the press launch for which is available in always-convenient PDF.

The Medium Lobster is certain you will all find it rich with the startling new information that the Iraq war has increased the likelihood of terrorism, that progress in Iraq has been hampered by a lack of troops and poor coordination between the occupation and the Iraqis, and that security problems continue to persist. This is all incredible news proving another startling victory in the war on terror, for reasons the Medium Lobster would explain once again, were he not so staggered with the exhaustion of a cosmic and metaphysical battle the likes of which your petty minds are too limited to conceive.

The BBC comments on the report, quoting it to the effect that al Qaeda has been "spurred on" by the Iraq war, swelling its ranks to the current terrifying number of 18,000. CNN quotes it to indicate that in fact American forces have successfully reduced al Qaeda numbers to a mere 18,000. The Medium Lobster leaves you to ponder this press koan in solitude.
