'A certain level of violence'

This morning, President Bush spoke of what is it we hope to bring to the people of Iraq. (Via Richard)
Success is not, no violence. There are parts of our own country that have got a certain level of violence to it. But success is a level of violence where the people feel comfortable about living their daily lives. And that’s what we’re trying to achieve.

Leaving aside the grammatical faux pas, such a statement redefines chutzpah in a whole new way coming less then 24 hours after a State Department official seemed to be saying that the increased violence in Iraq is actually a good thing.

We claimed to want to bring democracy but now we can't even guarantee normalcy.
