“I’m Not Putting Lipstick On Any Pigs Out There”

Well, somebody is.

Expressions of concern among conservatives and former Iraqi exiles, seen also in the rising disillusionment of the American public, reflect a widening gap with the Bush administration and its claims of “incredible political progress” in Iraq.

What’s the big rush with this jury rigged, half-a$$ed ‘constitution’? I don’t get it. We’re stuck there for the long haul either way, so why not DO IT RIGHT? KEEP OUR PROMISES? Make life BETTER for ALL Iraqis and make Iraq a BEACON for the whole Arab World.
We could do that.
We could.
UPDATE: Ayman Zawahiri sees hope for the future, besides chewing on Zarqawi and asking for a little hand-out.

Invoking the specter of the United States abruptly abandoning Iraq as it did to Vietnam, Zawahiri counseled immediate political action: “We must take the initiative and impose a fait accompli upon our enemies, instead of the enemy imposing one on us.”

Be a shame to let these guys down or so we hear, right Mr. Kennedy?
BUMP ~ UPDATE AGAIN: It seems the story I linked to (above) last night happens to be one of Yahoo’s ‘most popular:viewed/emailed’. Nice to be ahead of the curve again, but it does make me wonder who’s doing the emailing. Is it believers in what we’re doing sending it to doubters? Surprised anti-war types forced to rethink their position by virtue of Al-Qaeda’s banking on a given reaction? What, why and whom? Hmmm, hmmm, hmmmm

    No we can’t. Because as soon as we leave they’ll be overrun with with the Religious Extremist du jour.
    Now, if we attempt to convert the ENTIRE EFFING REGION, maybe.
