The NeoCon Backtrack

At this point in time, pretty much everyone with a brain agrees that Invading Iraq was a mistake. This NOW includes the Neocon think-tankers who pushed and pushed to Invade not only Iraq but ALL of the middle east.

Finally, even those men and those in the PNAC who are responsible for convincing the President and his cabinet to start a war in Iraq, are admitting that they were in fact, wrong.

The only people still chanting 'stay the course' are jilted brides (even though they haven't realized that their neocon groom has snuck out the back door of the church). That leaves these truly clueless twits floundering about. They are still repeating what FOX news tells them. They find hope that their two political heroes- McCain and Leiberman, are urging Bush to send 20,000 more troops to fix the civil war. These two "outlaws" to their parties are simply career politicians plying their trade (of Bullshit). They understand that it is over too. But they are banking their political careers on being able to say in the future that they never gave up. They didn't surrender.

Such false bravado should be seen for what it is. These two "patriots" don't give a damn how many American soldiers die in Iraq, or how much money is wasted there- as long as they can somehow spin themselves into a berth for the 2008 elections. These contemptible men are stepping gleefully over the bodies of our dead troops on the way to more political gain.

Stupidity. Pure stupidity. As if 20,000 more or even 40,000 soldiers would make a difference at all! And while the most ignorant among us still urge that we keep on fighting, they can't even tell you what we are SUPPOSED to be fighting for. Was it WMD? nope. To help the Iraqi people? nope. Democracy for Iraq? That didn't work out. Oil? Hell - even THAT idea is screwed now. OPEC cut production yesterday and the Saudis have read Cheney the riot act over the chaos in Iraq. Get ready for $5 gallon gas ...

Besides the military-industrial complex and Halliburton, only one group is happy with the events in Iraq. And that's the Hawks in Israel. They may not be so happy once they see how the Iraq war has changed global perceptions of both the U.S. and Israel. (Not to mention that American soon won't be able to afford to keep funneling money to Israel.)

America is more disliked and hated amongst Arab nations AND non-Arab nations alike- which will result in more terror. America has wasted 300 billion dollars in Iraq and our economy is only being kept afloat by sucking on the Chinese money teat. Our military is at a 30 year low in regards to readiness levels. Habeus Corpus is dead in America.

Is THIS Mission Accomplished? If someone keeps on screwing up, day in, day out, for years on end- DO YOU let them keep their jobs? Only if you are a fucking sucker. It's well past time to quit listening to the fools, sycophants, and incompetents and get our forces out of Iraq.

If you can name a GOOD Reason for our troops staying there, Feel free to illuminate me. But if all you are going to throw at me is "cut and run/weakling/coward/we can win if we try harder" don't bother. Because the Weakest and most cowardly men in our nation's history are the ones running America right now, like its some damn corporation. And they are failing. The Plan according to Bush is to make our country into the United States of Enron. Looks like he achieved that, more fool he.

EXCERPT from the Vanity Fair article:

For Kenneth Adelman, "the most dispiriting and awful moment of the whole administration was the day that Bush gave the Presidential Medal of Freedom to [former C.I.A. director] George Tenet, General Tommy Franks, and Jerry [Paul] Bremer—three of the most incompetent people who've ever served in such key spots. And they get the highest civilian honor a president can bestow on anyone! That was the day I checked out of this administration. It was then I thought, There's no seriousness here. These are not serious people. If he had been serious, the president would have realized that those three are each directly responsible for
the disaster of Iraq."
