So ... how's that "surge" working out for you? Ooooooooh ... not so well, I see.
LOGIC FOR THE HARD OF THINKING: Like the obedient little right-wing stenographer that she is, Kate McMillan brings us the good news from the killing fields:
"One by one, the 18 provinces of Iraq are being turned over to the Iraqis"
There's more optimism, of course, with nary a mention of this (from my earlier link):
WASHINGTON – The Bush administration is quietly on track to nearly double the number of combat troops in Iraq this year, an analysis of Pentagon deployment orders showed Monday.
When additional support troops are included in this second troop “surge,” the total number of U.S. troops in Iraq could increase from 162,000 now to more than 200,000 – a record high number – by the end of the year.
Gosh, Kate ... things might be getting quieter over there, and almost 40,000 more troops are on their way to Iraq. Think there might be a connection?
No, no, take your time, think it over and get back to me. I wouldn't want to rush you.
BECAUSE YOU'RE OBVIOUSLY BORED AND NEED SOMETHING TO DO, take a few minutes and read the comments on that post of Kate's. Really. The sheer airheaditude is something to behold. Feel free to select your favourite.
