Wishful thinking, I’m afraid
From Scripting News
My Dad is convinced that Bush
shouldwill go on TV and say “We won in Iraq,” and it’s time to go home. When you think about it, the whole thing is pretty spooky. We’re fighting the people we liberated. I don’t see any Iraqis standing beside us. Maybe they’re there but we haven’t heard about them. Anyway, it seems like now is a good time to take a bow, and get out while the gettin’s good.
I hope that does happen, but doubt it will. As I see it, the real reason for invading Iraq has little if anything to do with “liberating” Iraq, but rather is about controlling oil spigots in the Middle East and establishing permanent military presences in Iraq.
