Quote of the Day 8/21

"We've begun to change tactics in Iraq, and in some areas, particularly in al- Anbar province, [the Surge] is working, we're just years too late changing our tactics, we can't ever let that happen again. We can't be fighting the last war, we have to be preparing to fight the new war."

- Hillary Clinton (that's right, Hillary Clinton) in a speech to the national VFW. Clinton is staying true to her moderate stance on Iraq, and it really hasn't hurt her in this early primary season, whereas it's going to be an enormous help in the general season. Man, she's smart.

If she were elected, who does she think we should fight next? I'm hoping Iran, which would be a psychotic option.

By 2009, the Middle East will be a different place then it is now: hotter with more attitude. Iran will indirectly control most of Iraq's Shiite population through al Sadr, who will gladly turn his people on our boys en masse if we still hadn't brought them home by then. If we don't redeploy, Iran's presence and recent battles against the Kurdist separatists on the northeastern border of Iraq will only inflame matters more.

The media will start up with the same fear mongering stories about Iran that got us into Iraq. Scratch that, they've already started.

With Hill hypothetically being the first female president, she wouldn't want to appear weak in front a them Repubs so she'd drop a few well placed bombs into the backyards of our Persian brothers just to 'send a message' to the extremists of both countries, ours and theirs, that women can start wars too.

Before we could even finish collectively patting ourselves on our fat backs for a job well done, Iran would retaliate with a suicide attack, of any magnitude, in this country. Panic and paranoia would conflate, which the media would only make worse. They've gotten so good at since 9/11.

With a population in panic, Hill would naturally re institute the draft. Naturally. Thus making the mothers of both countries so happy they'd rejoice in the streets for their children get the wonderful opportunity to go to war. Yay!

Chris, you'll come out of it with a Silver Star. I'll get a Purple Heart, which, by that time, I'll have to purchase on my own.

This, of course, is all speculation, unless W. gets us there first. Either from his idiocy or from sheer boredom. After all, Karl's not around anymore for tickle fights.

Bob Baer, a former CIA Officer, indicated that we'd most likely see an attack on Iran in the next six months, so I'm going to gear up early. Coast Guard, here I come!

Just think, all of this senseless violence could be averted if we would just pull out of Iraq and attack the real problem: China!
