Even Some Conservatives Now See It

Armstrong Williams, once a paid spokesman for the administration thinks we screwed the pooch in Iraq.

It was a grand idea. But somewhere along the way we were misled by the image of the middle east we wanted, instead of the middle east that exists........ A global democracy works only when countries trust one another. America’s insistence on burrowing into Iraq without substantial proof that they possessed weapons of mass destruction frayed that trust, and will inevitably sew problems into our foreign relations missions for decades to come. It also served as a touchtone, uniting our enemies. The longer we stay, the more people will come from all over the world to fight us. ...... The Iraqi insurgency isn’t about Islamic fundamentalism. It’s not even about fighting for independence. People have poured in form around the world to support them in the struggle to reject America’s superiority......You cannot lead in a global democracy, if people do not trust you. It is undeniable that we went about this in a very flawed manner. We need to admit that. We cannot solve the problem of terrorism by asserting our will on the world. Meanwhile, the deterioration of Iraq continues, serving as a sad reminder of the failed promise of this mission, and the need to pull out.

Couldn't have said it better myself. When even a Rush fill in agrees, the reality based world is setting in on people..thank God. Maybe soon we can get out and get back on track to the fight against terrorism.

:-) Good point! Let's put it this way...whoever wrote it has finally got a grip on the reality based world.

Ron, we all know that the real reality-based world is on t.v. wide open these days.

I wonder if that's where the game gets his?
