On "Success" in Iraq

Next week, Gen. Petraeus will give Congress a report the White House has written saying that the "surge" is working wonderfully, and we need to stay in Iraq so that the next President will be the one recorded as "losing" there.

Gen. Petraeus has a history of being consistently wrong about Iraq, and he has a history of incompetence when it comes to running the war there. It was under his command that so many weapons went missing and wound up in the hands of those who were using them against Americans.

One thing that will by hyped is the lower level of "violence" in certain neighborhoods. Well, the reason the violence is down there is because the ethnic cleansing has been completed there. Plus, they don't count mass bombings as happened at that ethnic enclave last week as "sectarian violence." If you're shot in the back of the head, it's sectarian violence, but not if you're shot in the front.

And they will hype Anbar Province as proof the surge is working. Actually, it proves the opposite. The Sunnis in Anbar have taken over for themselves and we have withdrawn troops there, not "surged" them.

Trust the Bushevik liars to turn anything around to prove their point, even though it has nothing to do with reality.
