Complete Failure In Iraq

Refuting Dick "is that egg on my face" Cheney's claim that the Iraqi insurgency is in its "last throes," the top American commander in the Persian Gulf, General John Abizaid, told Congress that the Iraqi insurgency has not grown weaker in the last six months.

Abizaid told the panel that not only are there more foreign fighters coming into Iraq, but that the overall strength of the insurgency is about the same as it was half a year ago. He concluded by saying that "We are not trying to paint a rosy picture."

At the same hearing Sen. Edward Kennedy confronted Secretary of Defense Ronald Dumsfeld (pun intended) stating, "In baseball, it's three strikes, you're out. What is it for the secretary of defense? Isn't it time you resign?"

And now The Peach is elated to hear that it's not just Democrats that are attacking this administration's "wreck in Iraq." Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina stated that, "Public support in my state is turning. People are beginning to question. And I don't think it's a blip on the radar screen. We have a chronic problem on our hands."

With one screw up after another, the failures of this administration are becoming more pronounced daily. If the Downing Street memos begin getting more air play, "Little Boots" Bush can expect the same ignominious departure as Richard Nixon. Finally, The Peach can see the wheels coming off their little red wagon.
