Another Sad Milestone
Four years ago, George W. Bush, a man so far in over his head in the Presidency that the hydrostatic pressure must be ginormous, directed the invasion of Iraq to begin. Now, after nearly 3,200 American and countless Iraqi lives lost, tens of thousands maimed, and billions of dollars thrown down the Iraq rat hole (and into Halliburton's bank accounts), the Chickenhawk in Chief wants more patience, saying it "will take months, not days or weeks" for success. No, you blundering, murderous fool. It will not take months, because success will never come. Your incompetence has assured that outcome, no matter what you do now to grow a fig leaf for the withdrawal you know is inevitable. To paraphrase the anti-Vietnam War song, we're knee-deep in the Big Muddy, and the big fool says to push on!
