CNN has a piece on the 4-year anniversary of the war.
There are some real darling quotes in there. Like this:
“There’s been good progress.”
Am I missing something?
“If American forces were to step back from Baghdad, before it is more secure, a contagion of violence could spill out across the entire country,” Bush said. “In time this violence could engulf the region.”
This is true. But is Bush offering a legitimate option for creating a lasting peace? It seems not.
But, in case all the sectarian violence has you feeling gloomy, we’re going to have a hanging pretty soon. Should be a good one.
