The war in Iraq is over. We won!

In case you had any doubts about the level of intellectual dishonesty of North Carolina conservatives at the John Locke Foundation, they actually paid this asshole to give them a lecture on how Bush's War in Iraq has already been won. Under the Dome has the story.

Tired of watching those "Law and Order" reruns? Tune in this weekend to historian Larry Schweikart's take on how the United States is winning the war in Iraq.

Schweikart, the author of "America's Victories: Why the U.S. Wins Wars and will Win the War On Terror," spoke earlier this month to a John Locke Foundation event in Wilmington.

"I submit to you that we won the conflict in Iraq -- historically speaking -- in November 2004 at Fallujah," Schweikart says," and that victory was further ensured with Zarqawi's recent death. Thirty years from now, I think historians will look back at November 2004 as a tipping point."

Ya mean this war? Or maybe this one? Or this one?

Follow the link on Schweikart to Freeperland for a good sad, laugh. And bet on this: thirty years from now, historians will look back at 2004 as a gross error in judgment by the American people to 'stay the course' behind a goddamned lunatic. And the John Locke Foundation will be reduced to a footnote, starved into oblivion when the Puppetmaster finally realized what a waste of money it was.


I had a hard time

getting beyond the first paragraph without laughing my fanny off. Just the idea that any lunatic could possibly say that we are winning the war in Iraq let alone that it was won almost two years add to that....the John Locke foundation probably paid him a pretty penny to give that speech.

Oh God, we can't let anyone who would pay to hear a load of bull run the government in this state.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

I just can't even talk about that one

I saw the funniest headline at the WaPo...

Inaction Could Lead to Backlash

Conflict threatens Bush's long-term foreign policy goals in the Middle East and war on terrorism.

First - Bush has long-term foreign policy goals for the Middle East?
Second - There was ever any chance Bush would accomplish any of his foreign policy goals for the Middle East?

They sure are presumptuous, aren't they?

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Wait...I was wrong

Bush did achieve one of his foreign policy goals for the Middle East...

He got his damned war.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.
