I think you should be more explicit here....

Over at Crooked Timber there's a post describing a BBC program that aired videos of two envisioned futures for Iraq: one "pessimistic", one "optimistic."
His "optimistic" scenario has Iraq descending even further into the mire of sectarian killing, US withdrawal and Iranian and Saudi invasion ... but then the character who utters his script tell us: "we were at the brink, and then, for some reason—a miracle—we stepped back". ... I'm all for looking on the bright side. But miracles?
