The "I broke it, now tell me why you won't buy it" strategy
Bush: If you don't like my Iraq plan, tell me yours
"We have a new strategy with a new mission: Helping secure the population, especially in Baghdad," Bush said in his weekly radio address. "Our plan puts Iraqis in the lead."
And thus we return to the "they stand up, we stand down" rhetoric of last year, and the fact that we're sending more than 20,000 new soldiers to Iraq just goes to show how well THAT's been working.
But just to show I'm not all talk and no strategery, here's my plan for the "plus up" or "surge" or "warblogger Cialis" or whatever brand name they're giving it now: Round up every damn mouthbreather who STILL even now thinks Iraq had something to do with 9/11, and/or is still convinced Saddam moved the nukes to Syria, and/or thinks bin Laden is hiding out in Iraq, and/or thinks we should have been "tougher" to start with, suit them up in BDAs, hand their asses a rifle and airdrop them into the middle of the Green Zone, where they can at least do a little bit of good for once in this massive CF they're so damn willing to forgive Bush for.
Just a suggestion.
