New definition requested: "Stable"

I've pretty much given up on ever getting a definition of "victory," so I might as well move on to the next bit of ambiguity. Laura Bush had this to say on Larry King:

Many parts of Iraq are stable now. But, uh, of course, what we see on television is the one bombing a day that discourages everyone.
I guess it depends on what your definition of the word "stable" is. Mine doesn't allow much wiggle room on the issue of daily bombings.

And damn those insurgents for harshing our buzz with their daily bombings!

I try to flippant to keep from losing my mind, but this is just getting fucking depressing.

Hmm. I'm gonna have to imagine that Mrs. Bush was merely trying to point out that most of Iraq is chemically stable -- neither decaying radioactively, nor spontaneously breaking down into simpler chemicals. I don't know about you, but that smells like victory to me.
