The politics of wishfull thinking

Victory would have washed away all sins.

With the war in Iraq escalating and becoming increasingly complex the Bush administration is facing tough questions about the war. Why are we there? Why didn't you have a plan for the aftermath? What laws did you break to get us into this mess?

Thus far the administration's strategy has been one of wishful thinking. In the mind of a Bushbot the ends justify the means. However, with the 'ends' in doubt the 'means' come to the forefront. The more uncertain the future in Iraq the more hard questions get asked here on the home front.

If you lie to get us into a war...you better win and win quick. Defeat brings consequences the wishful thinkers are only now realizing. The American people no longer see Bush and his crew as credible, honest, or competent. Justice may yet be served.

Great post Kenny!

What will the Bush Administration and the BushBots do if Iraq declares itself an Islamic State rather than a Democracy? What then?

I only ask because it seems the last fall back position of the BushBots is to say we went to Iraq to establish Democracy and bring freedom to the Iraqi People.

What if what we really bring to Iraq is Sharia Law and a Theocracy? Then what BushBots?

This has already happened Neo.

The new Iraq constitution creates an Islamic republic with Sharia law elevated above any other source of law.

I hear you Kenny...But I was just trying to be "technically" correct since the Iraqis have not voted on the new constitution.

We all know how the NeoCon Republicans love to argue semanitcs, parse sentences, and technicalities rather than truth.

Good point. In fact the constitution may not pass.

This thing is such a mess it's hard to think what might happen.

Poli, that has already happened: In regards to Iraq becoming a Islamic state. So I pose this question: Why are we still there?

Democracy won't happen. The closet thing to democracy would be to have a theocratic democracy, like Kuwait. Kuwait is in pretty good shape.

Stay the course, even if it means getting your ass burned.
