We can only hope. Via Bill, the
According to the translated al-Qaida in Iraq’s documents, the Mujahideen’s only power lies in surprise ‘hit and run’ attacks, or setting up explosive charges and booby traps that predominantly target civilian men, women and children.

According to the author of the Baghdad State of Affairs document (translated), “The actions of the Iraqi Security Forces are having a significant negative impact on the Mujahideen’s ability to operate in Baghdad. Al Qaida in Iraq attacks Mosques and other public places to draw media attention and is having difficulty recruiting members because the people of Iraq do not support its cause.”

I heard on Special Report the other day that American armed forces find something like 70 or 80 percent of IED's before they go off, or it might have been seventy or eighty IED's for everyone that explodes. I'll look for that number!

Update: I can't get rid of the large font in the top sentence! Who knows why?
