Whose side?

David Kilcullen takes The Guardian to task for its assessment of the mood in Baghdad. He provides several corrections and fills in the details, but at one point he asks the most naive of questions.

And yes, there is a risk that home-front political will might collapse just as we are getting things right on the ground. Given some commentators’ overall negativity, one suspects that their efforts may be directed to precisely that end. You may not like the President, you may be unhappy about the war. But whose side are you on?
Well, maybe not so naive.
