Ah the Bush Spin Machine - you've got to love it! The recent fighting in Basra between Iraqi forces and insurgents/militias is a positive change of events. WASHINGTON, March 30 (UPI) -- CIA Director Gen. Michael Hayden said Sunday the ongoing violence in Basra was an "inevitable" part of rebuilding Iraq. That's right kids, the increasing violence in Iraqi cities is a good thing, and it shows that progress is being made in the democratization of the Middle East. The Bush policy is a success, once again.
Does anyone believe this load of political double-speak cow manure? This is the old "when they stand up, we'll stand down" crap that's been chanted by the Bush policy cheerleaders for 5 years. The facts on the ground, that the Iraqi forces have not been able to dislodge the militias from Basra, speak truth to Bush lies. There is no end in sight to this war of occupation - John McCain has it right, a hundred years, maybe a thousand years. The actions by Iraqi security forces (and good for them for working hard against unsurmountable odds) won't save the failed Bush policies and the failed Bush war. They won't change the facts that the U.S. invasion of Iraq was not only a failure from the beginning, but certainly an unlawful invasion of a sovereign nation for no just cause.
Stay tuned for more "good news" from the Iraq war!
