The Future of (Ignored) News in America

Confronting Iraq
Rumsfeld, to U.S. troops: "It is unknowable how long that conflict will last. It could last six days, six weeks. I doubt six months."
Cheney, on Meet the Press: "...My belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators... I think it will go relatively quickly,... (in) weeks rather than months."
Rumsfeld: Iraq Insurgency Could Last Years
Rumsfeld said the insurgency "could go on for any number of years... Insurgencies tend to go on five, six, eight, 10, 12 years."
Again, I ask: which is better - political leaders who lie to you, or are incompetent? Those are the choices. The clock is ticking and the blood still flows.

Blood spills on many soils, and souls lost number more than souls saved by the W,Rove and Co.

I love it when they trot out the old nine eleven gambit as an excuse for the war in Iraq. I do remember, and if I am not mistaken, nine eleven happened on their watch.

And it is funny, you know. It seems like a direct correlation. As the morass gets deeper, the rhetoric more simple. Brace yourselves for a healthy dose of Bushspeak later this day.
