McCain, The Surge, and the Ferris Wheel
Of all the Big Lies that come out of Poppy McCain's piehole these days...the absolute worst one is the one about how The Surge is such a big success...it has won the War in Iraq.
And what truly terrifies me is that so many American now believe that myth, even Obama has bought the biscuit.
"I think that the surge has succeeded in ways that nobody anticipated ....It's succeeded beyond our wildest dreams."
When of course it's all bullshit.
Shorter version: To strike back against the religious fanatics who attacked them on 9/11, the United States invaded the only secular country in the region, and turned it into Shiite dictatorship. Where the Sunnis now cower in their segregated neighbourhoods, waiting for the inevitable civil war. Hundreds of thousands are dead, millions of refugees can't go home. And the only winners are the Iranians. Who made the surge work...and now control a Shiite empire stretching from Iraq all the way to the Gaza Strip.
How can McCain call that victory when it's the greatest geopolitical DEFEAT in the history of the United States.
But doncha love that Ferris wheel?
The only one in the world where you have to be strip searched and take out life insurance before you get on.
You know I'm glad that at long last Obama is going after McCain's Big Lies.
But until he can go after Poppy's BIggest Lie. Until Americans understand what's really happening in Iraq.
Obama will be fighting McCain.
With one arm behind his back...
