Every time I see this fantasyland stuff about how we have to fix things we broke I wonder where in the hell the people proposing we stay in Iraq have been for the past three years. Barring some unforseen circumstance, the people who got us into Iraq in the first place and then crapped all over it, are going to be in power for the next three years. Even if Dick Cheney “accidentally” shot Bush while they were quail hunting and then died of a heart attack in a secret, undisclosed location, you’d still have people like Rumsfeld, Rice, Hadley, etc. running the show. Can anyone with a brain seriously expect them to do a better job than they’ve been doing?
