The quagmire continues

The New York Times isn’t giving up, but their complaints are starting to become a little thin:

In downtown Baghdad, a police headquarters has been painted two shades of purple: lilac and grape. The central bank, a staid building in many countries, is coated in bright red candy cane stripes. . .

Baghdad has weathered invasion, occupation, sectarian warfare and suicide bombers. But the latest scourge, tastelessness, may prove the toughest to overcome.

An Instapundit reader remarks:

When all the New York Times can complain about is the color of buildings in Baghdad, can we officially say that the war was a success?

BONUS: Perhaps sensing that their thesis was a bit overwrought, the NYT has changed the final sentence of the quote to “But now it faces a new scourge: tastelessness.”
