Reading trend lines

Spotty got this graph from Informed Comment.

Boys and girls, what can we conclude from this graph?

That things have been getting steadily worse in Iraq, essentially from the get-go?

Very good grasshopper. If we were to draw a single line representing the number of attacks, what would it look like?

An ascending line from left to right, showing an increase in attacks over time.

Right again. One last question. Based on your reading of this graph, all the administration people who have been saying that the war in Iraq was getting better these last four years are what?

Delusional or liars.
