The Great Bush Plan for Iraq

Over at Americablog, Joe has a post about a coming negative shadow campaign of the Bush administration targeting Republicans. This group is led by Ari Fleisher, who gives this wonderful quote:

"We want to get the message to both Democrats and Republicans: Don't cut and run, fully fund the troops, and victory is the only objective."

Now that last bit, 'victory is the only objective', is indicative of the entire reason our incursion into Iraq is such a debacle. The only objective is victory, and there is no definition of victory. No plan to get there, just this idea that we will go there and we will win. This is why we have lost the peace. Over and over again the administration and its supporters are told this, and they can only continue to say we must win.

Not only that, but they state that anyone who calls Iraq a failure wants to lose. This is total bullshit and anyone who says such is either stupid and blind or a liar. We don't want defeat, but we realize when such a defeat has been achieved and that it will only get worse if we continue to blindly march forward. We lost through the leadership of this administration and the Republican party. The best thing to do is get out and hope for the best, unless this country is willing to spend another trillion and reinstate the draft, which I doubt will happen and would most certainly bring our country to its knees.
