Snarky Behavior

Remember when scholars were calling Bush “Wilsonian,” as if he had some grandiose dedication to letting freedom and democracy reign across the Middle East?

Yeah, not so much.

A secret deal being negotiated in Baghdad would perpetuate the American military occupation of Iraq indefinitely, regardless of the outcome of the US presidential election in November.

Bush wants to push it through by the end of next month so he can declare a military victory and claim his 2003 invasion has been vindicated. But by perpetuating the US presence in Iraq, the long-term settlement would undercut pledges by the Democratic presidential nominee, Barack Obama, to withdraw US troops if he is elected president in November.

Sir, I’m not sure you have a strong grasp of what the word “vindicated” means.

    “Bush wants 50 military bases, control of Iraqi airspace and legal immunity for all American soldiers and contractors”

    That headline makes him sound like a kid on Santa’s lap. You’ll shoot your eye out, Mr. President!
