Just a couple of brief items on Everyone's Favorite Quagtastrophe:
1) BushCo apparently feels somehow vindicated because no-one else can figure out how to fix Iraq either. I wholeheartedly support Atrios's conclusion.
2) If, dare I hope, a Democrat gets elected president almost-next year, will Bush do something reckless and crazy at the end of his term to ensure that his successor inherits the most disastrous no-win situation possible? Were it almost any other president, I wouldn't even consider such a thing, but there seems to be no limit to Dubya's narcissistic petulance, or his indifference to the common good.
NOTE: This scenario does not necessarily have to be Iraq-specific. It could just as easily be, say, some sort of disastrous covert military op in Iran or North Korea.
