Vietnamizing Iraq (Chapter 2,197)
by

Now we have it officially from Howlin’ Howie Dean: the U.S. will not win in Iraq. Here are the money quotes from a radio hit he did earlier today with a Texas station:

“I’ve seen this before in my life. This is the same situation we had in Vietnam. Everybody then kept saying, ‘just another year, just stay the course, we’ll have a victory.’ Well, we didn’t have a victory, and this policy cost the lives of an additional 25,000 troops because we were too stubborn to recognize what was happening.”

“I think we need a strategic redeployment over a period of two years…Bring the 80,000 National Guard and Reserve troops home immediately. They don’t belong in a conflict like this anyway. We ought to have a redeployment to Afghanistan of 20,000 troops, we don’t have enough troops to do the job there and its a place where we are welcome. And we need a force in the Middle East, not in Iraq but in a friendly neighboring country to fight (terrorist leader Musab) Zarkawi, who came to Iraq after this invasion. We’ve got to get the target off the backs of American troops.”

For those who don’t get it, “strategic redeployment” translates, in the best Monty Python terms to “run away.” See Monty Python and the Holy Grail again, and you’ll understand the Democratic Party’s strategy for the global war on terror.
