I think they're finally figuring it out

(AP) "The administration contends that setting a timetable on the war assumes failure in Iraq."

That's the whole point. You've lost this war, and even if you're not willing to admit it, 60% of Americans favor a timetable because they see no attainable victory in Iraq.

There's a reason the Republicans in the Senate are crumbling.

(I'm stopping here because I feel a rant coming on.)


  • One would be hard pressed to find a better example of "failure" than to simply reflect on the past four years and this administrations ego-filled incompetence.

  • I used to believe there was some sort of overarching plan that would tie all the false flag ops, outright lies and jingoistic propaganda into a neat bow. In the end it really seems to be a dog eat dog power and money grab that has no other rationale than grab or steal want isn't nailed down and you don't have to pay for, unless you're reimbursed fully by a PAC first.

  • The only overarching plan I can imagine is that the administration's goal was to get the US permanently, deeply engaged in the middle east with a barbed hook so that extraction would be near impossible.

    But, I don't think their statements really support that because they were working on the illfounded presumption of their own competence.

    I really think that they believed they could sweep up the middle east in less than six years.

    I also believe that they thought that if they went full out there and here, that America would be so awed that they would have that permanent republican majority.
