    Because it was the right thing then does not make it the right thing now. Conditions change.
  2. Especially with a career screw-up running things.

    What Fenian proposes is that we start running as fast as we can to the Kuwaiti border, leaving behind everything to help create a radical Islamic empire.

    Or is it that you don't really have any ideas. A typical democrat, which is to merely complain and not offer any ideas. Just getting Bush to admit failure is a victory.

    And for FB... Now HERE is the Charlie Rangle quip that did hit the mark... I can't find the quote, but to paraphrase Rangle, "Everyone wants to know how the Democrats are going to fix Iraq now that we have the house and senate. They say we don't have a plan. Well, our plan would have been to not create this mess in the first place. Isn't it the Republicans you should criticize for not having a plan? Why's it our fault that we don't have a quick fix for this mess?"
  5. Yes, because I look terrific in a blue turban. Of course, the one thing that a secular armed Iraq did was stand in the way of Islamic fundamentalism. Now, there is no American solution to this problem. They will all faily, bloodily, because they are our solutions. Here's my idea -- redeploy. Get our army out of the sandbox before it collapses entirely.
    Get lost or get inducted, you little twit. Grown-ups are talking.
    Oh, and Bush's idea for expanding the military sounded familar.

    So Bush misquoted himself after proclaiming victory?

    I never said it was a great option, but it's just about all we've got left. Other than pulling out completely and allowing the chips to fall wherever, what else you got? We leave a skeleton group in Kuwait to handle only major flare-ups and protect that country, arm the side of our choosing and accept the outcome. That's all there is left, outside of scorching the whole country.

    With Rummy out, the baboon now grasps at the only chance he THINKS he has to emerge looking anything close to good, in this affair.

    He's mistaken, of course . . . but that shouldn't surprise anyone, given the accumulation of past
  9. Get the hell out. As quickly as possible.
    Luckily, John McCain's signed up a staff with some experience at sizing up bad options and choosing precisely the wrong one.

    A quarterback sneak is the right thing on first-and-goal from the 1.

    A quarterback sneak is the wrong thing on fourth-and-25.

    You only get a few rare chances to make the right decisions. If you blow those, your only decisions are basically cut-our-losses moves.
