Hey liberals: Let Bush declare victory in Iraq

Much has been written by pundits left and right in response to an op-ed in yesterday's NY Times, "A War We Just Might Win," which asserts that things are improving in Iraq. Conservatives are hailing the op-ed as proof that the surge is working and everything is going to be fine if we just stick with it (nee "stay the course"); liberals are deriding the piece as another round of pixie dust from the same Tinkerbells who led us into war in the first place.

The liberals are right, of course, but pointing out the truth won't get them anywhere. Instead, they need to let Bush and his minions believe they're winning the war, so they can eventually declare victory and our troops can come home. Bush & Co. will not be satisfied any other way, and liberals are just beating their heads against a wall trying to fight them on it.

Let it go, liberals. Let Bush declare victory. It's the only way the rest of us will ever win.

But... but...

Mission accomplished I thought. Just another repeat is all we'll get- that's why even if Dumbdumb declares victory, I know it will be a matter of days or weeks before a hundred more Americans die and another several billion dollars is flushed down the toilet.

Hey Crall,

Yeah, we should have said, "Let Bush declare victory - and then beat a hasty retreat, before anything else bad happens." But considering Bush's pesky habit of always doing the wrong thing, that's probably just as unrealistic as our original proposition...
