A bitch would like to hit reverse and touch on a slightly dated news story.
The United States has been planning and building towards a permanent presence in Iraq modeled on the Korean solution.
Administration officials in the past have denied that the United States would have a permanent presence…Scooter B. and his minions went on and on about accomplishing the mission and getting out. Speech after speech was given assuring all that the United States is not an occupying force…that we would stand down once Iraqis stand up…that an Iraqi War victory existed and, once achieved, would birth the reward of withdrawal.
In reality Bush & Co. have been planning to build three to four permanent military bases in Iraq for years.
They are now testing newish bullshit by comparing a permanent U.S. presence in Iraq with our presence in Korea.
Scooter B. and his minions have slapped together some half assed intellectually lazy rancid mess and are trying to sell it as kimchi!
And even a fool can see it isn't kimchi any more than Iraq is Korea!
This plan reeks of an administration attempting to slide out the back door on the judgment of history without paying the motherfucking bill come due by selling the masses on the notion that Iraq can achieve détente through further U.S. involvement.
Damnit to hell and back again, they’ve made my afro hurt!
Iraq is not Korea and permanent bases are not a new way forward.
Gawd save us from the return of LBJ's denial, because this plan will have America shoulder deep in Vietnam-esque resistance to neocolonial conquest for decades.
