Question of the Day

The president's new plan is a plan for more door-to-door fighting, more civil war, more civilian casualties, more troop deaths, more wasted money, more destabilization in the region, and more separation from the world community. Does anyone in this administration have any sense at all?Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich

Though I love the rhetoric, Bush's "plan" does make sense once you realize that the administration is fighting against the Sadrists for enforceable oil contracts. For that they are willing to expend a great amount of treasure and sacrifice a great number of lives. That is not to say that it will succeed or that it is even sane, only that it has a certain internal logic.
