The Price of Success

When asked recently about what really went wrong in the administration's pre-war planning, White House press secretary Tony Snow remarked, with a completely straight face, “I’m not sure anything went wrong.”

Then, of course, we all remember Prick Cheney's assertion in the interview with Wolf Blitzer a couple weeks ago: "We have had enormous successes in Iraq."

So, according to the Misters Snow and Cheney, things are apparently going exactly as planned in Iraq. It's been a mistake-free success.

I'd hate to think, then, of what it would look like if it were a fucked up colossal blunder.

For once, I will say these war criminals are correct.

Iraq has not been a fuck-up for them. It has been a major success. Billions and billions of $$$$ to themselves and cronies, more than a dozen permanent military bases in Iraq, warnings to other countries to play ball with the US, etc.

If you know their real goals -- not the ever-changing ones they spoon feed the public -- then it is obvious that they are getting exactly what they want.

If only they could keep the mounting American deaths out of the news -- and I think overall they have done a pretty good job of that, too.

(Nice to see another progressive Sox fan!)
