Local Mountain Dweller Lists Pro-Administration Boneheads

Don't we all wish we could have a job in which, no matter how much we screwed up, we continued to be recognized and rewarded? We would aspire to be William Kristol, Ken Adelman, David Frum, Douglas Feith, Ollie North, Victor Davis Hanson, the Weekly Standard, conservative talk show hosts and the Fox News Channel. They were effectively 100% wrong about Iraq and now they are brought in as authorities on Iran.

This same group also advocated the "surge." Now Gen. David Petraeus suggests it will take no less than 10 years to stop the violence. With 14 permanent bases being built in Iraq, it is safe to say that we intend to occupy Iraq for many years to come.

Let's look back to 2001 and examine why 9/11 occurred. Osama bin Laden clearly said that having exhausted all other means of trying to get 20,000-plus U.S. military personnel out of Saudi Arabia, he had no alternative but to attack America. With all that conservative brain power, don't they realize that occupying Iraq guarantees an attack deadlier than 9/11? Maybe they do, but sacrificing your children is a small price to pay for oil and world domination.
