Victory in Iraq--Spin to Win

Hunker down for victory and celebrating Iraqis dancing in the streets. The Pepsi commercial for war is about to begin.
Victory in Iraq--Spin to Win
Victory in Iraq--Spin to Win
The new war strategy? Declare victory and distract the media with stories of grateful Iraqis and storehouses of chemical weapons. Or float irrelevant conjecture about whether or not Saddam is dead, again.)

Then hold your victory press conference. (No parade this time, can't let the nation climax, got to keep the war hysteria building. There are more wars to come in either Iran, Syria, or...hell, why don't we do Colombia good and proper?)

From the Washington Post a few days ago:
"The Bush administration has devised a strategy to declare victory in Iraq even if Saddam Hussein or key lieutenants remain at large and fighting continues in parts of the country, officials said yesterday."

After all what network will ask tough questions after the Bush administration declares the war won? Apathy will reign. We will have liberated Iraq even as it disintegrates into a long, bloody occupation.

Be prepared folks, this war is about to be won, or at least spun.

The US dupes in Baghdad will be sucking on guerilla warfare for months to come.

Must suck to be on the wrong side of history.

P.S. This comment was the first on this post, but the free speech defenders here deleted it. Wonder why.
