What a week!
The week started with the president assuring us we would win in Iraq. How? He handed out a nice 45-page outline with bullet points. The absurdity of such a ploy three years into this disaster forces the mind back to the USS Lincoln with the president, under the Rove-planted "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED" banner, assuring us the victory was complete.
A recent poll discussed on NPR shows that Arabs outside of Iraq overwhelmingly feel Iraq was better off under Saddam. They believe oil and Israel are the real reasons the U.S. invaded Iraq. How will the Bush administration explain these findings? I suppose they will plant more articles and editorials in Iraqi (and American) papers praising our efforts, question the motives of the pollster, and squeeze NPR's budget. Why not?
