More great planning

Just now glancing at the news, I see this headline:

Bush: to win in Iraq, beat extremists.

 No wonder this guy is the CiC, eh? This is clearly a throwback to Roosevelt’s classic WWII strategy ” to win in Europe, beat Nazis”. That in itself borrowed a lot from Washington’s landbreaking “to win in the Colonies, beat the British” policy that insured his place in military history.

After 3 1/2 years, I’m glad he’s got this thing worked out.



  1. He does indeed. Sadly though, basic English comprehension remains a mystery:

    James Baker: What we don’t want is for it to be treated like a fruit salad, with people saying we’ll have this, but we won’t have that.

    Bush: “I don’t think Jim Baker and Lee Hamilton expect us to accept every recommendation.”

  2. All of the Republican’t bloggers are still crying in their beer that because of the election, they can’t stay the course. It’s pathetic and reminds me of how some people just couldn’t let go of Viet Nam, even after we left.

  3. So do you reckon we should be looking out for Sly Stallone’s next Rambo film, sometime around 2015 (when, by my calculations, Sly will be 87 years old), featuring Sly goin’ back into that godforaken desert to get his buddies? And a few more barrels of oil for good measure?

    They drew first blood, man! They did!… Oh no, hang on…”

  4. Big difference between Iraq and the other campaigns: three-and-a-half years ago it was, “We’ll be welcomed as liberators.”

    Well, at least THAT guy’s gone.

  5. Yeah, and he worked it out with such aplomb! (he probably would have to drag out a dictionary for that one!)
