Another premature victory lap

By Creature

With the news today that the Bush Administration is moving forward with plans to stay in Iraq forever the chicken-hawks are doing a victory dance. This from Gateway Pundit [no link]:

It will be interesting to see what the democrats will have to say about this latest development. Surely, they will be disappointed. After all, it suggests that major fighting against terrorists is drawing down, that the insurgency is beat, that the Iraqis are ready to stand alone, that the US will have an important Middle Eastern base and that Bush wins. It's a Democratic nightmare.

Forget the lives lost and the billions spent. Don't mention tomorrow's dead and the billions more to be spent. Sweep under the rug the fact that this long-term deal is being struck with a unreconciled puppet government. Ignore the fact that U.S. oil interests will get their fair share confirming the terrorist battle cry. All that matters is that the boy president has been vindicating and the Democrats find themselves in a bind. So, yay, Bush wins! Mission accomplished (again)! Today is a glorious day for chicken-hawks and the perseverance they displayed.
