AIDS: Finding a cure or losing the war?

I received daily delivery of 2 newspapers:  my local Contra Costa Times and the national edition of the New York Times.

Today’s papers included completely divergent articles on the topic of AIDS.  (Yesterday was World AIDS Day.)

The Contra Costa Times had an upbeat article on page 1, extolling that UCSF researchers hoped to have a cure for the AIDS virus in 5 years.  The New York Times, however, took a completely contradictory approach to the topic, with a gloom and doom article starting on page A14 warning the United States is in danger of losing the war on AIDS.

So, which is it?  

Is an AIDS cure truly in the pipeline, or is the country embarking on a deadly loss in the war on AIDS?
