What a Dick!

Cheney is blathering on about how the insurgency is in its "last throes" and said on CNN last night, "We will succeed in Iraq, just like we did in Afghanistan." The problem is that we have not been successful in Afghanistan. Sure, there was good initial success, but outside of Kabul the country has always remained under warlord control. According to the U.S. State Department, Afghanistan is now harvesting record opium poppy crops which is used to produce herion . More alarmingly, violence is increasing and it appears that the Taliban and al Qaeda are regrouping and re-establishing themselves.

Oh yeah, we never caught Mullah Omar who was the leader of the Talliban and there is the fact that Osama bin Forgotten is still on the loose.

What is Cheney talking about? We never finished the job in Afghanistan and it is now growing into a major problem. If you call Afghanistan a "success" then I guess Iraq looks like it is "succeeding." Whatever!

Day 1391.
