Leiberman Visits Iraq; "Happy with Progress"

For God's sake, someone in the state department stop these people before they pursue photo ops in Iraq! What the hell kind of message is this?

Do what the president did yesterday - build an Iraqi street in Georgia, and visit THAT. Then you can walk in your shirtsleeves. You can even have a couple of "locals" greet you as a liberator, on camera. You kiss a baby, buy a couple of rugs, maybe even wrestle a terrorist to the ground with your bare hands. Whatever. Will it seem faked? Of course, but we're used to it now!

By the way, it's apparently the 2nd anniversary of Cheney's "last throes" remark: “the level of activity that we see today from a military standpoint, I think, will clearly decline.” And yes it will, after a final violent spasm which is just around the corner. The country is still pretty twitchy -- two years is a long time to be in throes -- but that's why it will be too exhausted to fight us over here! We are sitting in the catbird seat, my friends. This war is as good as won. But we still should probably occupy it for at least 50 more years. Why take chances. Pulling out is dangerous, and could cost lives.
