Brit Report: "War on Terror" Failing; Iraq a "Disastrous Mistake"
The Oxford Research Group has issued a report , according to Reuters, saying the "GWOT" is failing and producing more al Qaeda recruits. As if more confirmation of the Bush Assministration's catastrophic decision to go into Iraq rather than destroy al Qaeda were needed, Paul Rogers, the report's author, said the invasion had helped establish a "most valued jihadist combat training zone," and that even if recommended actions were taken to reverse course, it would still take "at least 10 years to make up for the mistakes made since 9/11." So much for the Rethugs being the party that can be trusted to fight the war on terror. The report, entitled "Alternatives to the War on Terror," also warns against the Assministration's apparent drift toward war with Iran, saying it would make matters "far worse." Given Dumbya's proclivity for choosing exactly the wrong path, what's the betting that we'll be attacking Iran in the near future?
