"We Must Deserve Victory"

I almost thought this was a spoof, but apparently it's authentic. The word count:

Terrorists/terrorism: 10
Insurgents: 1
Sunnis/Shiites: 1 each (in reference to Lebanon, not Iraq)

The desperation grows....

A tragicomic sidebar: Liz Cheney implores us to "read their blogs" -- "they" being the troops. So I dutifully clicked the link she provides to one such blog. The most recent post there is by a former Special Operations Master Sergeant:
They almost had me for a minute, you know the pomp, the ceremony, the best and brightest gathered together to make our world a better place. But then I snapped out of it and remembered that it was only our semi-coherent President, shaking the hand of a San Fran liberal who blinked somewhere around 82 million times, sitting next to a man who wished he was hunting and lying to the hundreds of whores arrayed before them. We have the greatest aggregation of human talent ever in one nation state, and this is our leadership?
When it goes bad, it really goes bad.

We played a drinking game during the SOTU..."terror" nearly put me under the table.

I pledged to down mass quantities if he whipped out the expected "The 'merican people gotta understand..." but I guess that one is reserved for squirming his way out of interview questions.

I'm surprised Liz Cheney took the time from calculating her inheritence and reading lesbian erotica to finally comment about her frustration regarding the average American's view of the war. What did that take about three years and 3000 lives?

It's just too bad the soldier didn't criticize the lesbians and the queers for the downfall of his country.

Cheney looked so bored and checked-out, looking around the room, often focusing on anything but the back of Bush's head. That alone told more about the state of Bush's presidency than did any round of muted applause.

CR, you cherry-picked the only rational sentence from that blog and it's frothing comment section. It's like a petri-dish of future Timothy McVeighs.

Point taken, but the blogger is engaging in bullying tactics. Ad hominem crap like this deserves no place of honor.

From the WaPo tally

Iraq 34
terrorists/terror 21
Iran 5
war 10
Al-Qaeda 10
oil 9
economy 7

And while I didn't watch the SOTU (I never watch no matter the prez) it seemd from the WaPo article(s) that there were a lot of bored folk (and the bit on the Cheney/Pelosi actions was funny).

I just wish one of these assholes would define "winning". How do we win an occupation?
