Busker is Back!

I'm using a hacksaw, he's got a scalpel.

This post in particular was very insightful :
Mission Accomplished


Poor Paul Rogers. He seems to have bought both the "war on terror" and the "Bush is incompetent" memes hook, line, and sinker, which is why he's having trouble understanding the strategy at work here. What'll he tell us next, that the Bush administration didn't mean to help marginalize Iran's moderate movement? Hey, Paul, here's a free clue: we aren't fighting a "war on terror," and contrary to your negative-nellie claims, everything's going very well; in fact, as close to perfectly as could be resonably expected. Consider the following points:

Did P.N.A.C. (Project for the New American Century) send a letter to President Clinton in 1998, signed by Don Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Robert (brother to Frederick) Kagan and others, stating that "removing Saddam Hussein and his regime from power... now needs to become the aim of American foreign policy"? Why, yes they did. Has P.N.A.C./the Bush administration removed Saddam Hussein from power? Yes they have. Is the U.S. still in Iraq, despite a clear majority of both Americans and Iraqis being opposed to our ongoing presence there? Erm, yeah.Well, that's not incompetence, that's success: a group of people who publically supported the invasion of Iraq and the ouster of Saddam Hussein for 3 years before the "war on terror" even began invaded Iraq, ousted Saddam Hussein, and set up shop in his country, all in the name of the "war on terror"... and hardly anybody noticed they were the same people. That's not just a success, that's a staggering act of perception management.

Enjoy the wit and wisdom of the Busker. Go forth and quantify.
