MORE Troops???

Let's see now. The war in Iraq has been a total debacle, an unmitigated disaster, a supreme clusterfuck, claiming nearly 3000 American lives, and all Baby Doc can do is ... call for more troops?

Let's throw some gasoline on the fire and try to put it out. Let's pour a thousand gallons of water over the top of that drowning man to try to save him. I remember an old bumper sticker from the Vietnam era: Fighting for peace is like fucking for virginity.

It's like the November elections -- as clear a referendum on the Iraq war as we could have seen -- didn't happen.

William Arkin, writing in the normally lickspittle WaHoPo, calls it out in his column today. And be sure to check out the blog posts at the bottom of the page. Unbelievably, there are still people who are so out of touch with reality that they are still supporting The Smirking Chimp.

The one who signs 'Crystal' must be smoking plenty of it!

The best thing we could do is pack up & get out like we FINALLY did in Vietnam. Unfortunately, we have destroyed the stable government in Iraq & would be leaving their society in chaos.

That's what people get for voting on moral issues and electing someone whose IQ doesn't have 3 digits.

Elizabeth Green, nobody elected him, he rigged the vote.

Although I agree and have no doubt about the IQ.
