The new, new strategy
Huzzah! The so-called Petraeus report, to be ghosted by the neo-cons, will be sold to the American people as a "a new strategy for Iraq." So says the NYT today. Can you believe it? Like some "new new" antacid or soap, we will get the same old non-strategy in a "new strategy" package. Get thee to Fighting Bob Fest to make it clear that a gradual reduction in troops to "keep American involvement in Iraq on a 'sustainable footing' at least through the end of the Bush presidency" is unacceptable.
The cynicism of this approach will not be lost on military families who face injury, death and loneliness for a cause not worth fighting for.
