Hot news from NBC. In a dramatic announcement, Matt Lauer announced that NBC has called it. There is a civil war raging in Iraq. Not to be outdone, one should expect CBS to announce that the Flat-Earth Society is wrong.
The world is upside down in the make-believe world of Bush and Cheney who continue to deny that a civil war has been in full throtle for months if not years.
The consequences of this irresponsible invasion and occupation are almost too much to contemplate. Joe Biden wants three Iraqs; Turkey says if that happens, they will invade; the Bush study team, meeting three years and eight months late, says we should work with Iran and Syria; Israel demands we bomb Iran; Syria wants total control of Lebanon; the Taliban is back; the insurgents in Iraq have all the money they need to keep going; Pakistan--well, you know about the stability of ouy ally Pakistan.
No wonder Bush wants a library. He needs a place to hide.
And the Democrats? Like early morning fog, they are softly, ever so softly saying, "Not our fault!" True or not, it is too late in the game to start over. It is
time for a Democratic plan. Any plan would be better than the seat on this cruise ship.
