STAYING THE COURSE….Eric Martin explains the worldview of the Iraq hawk:
If things in Iraq are chaotic and violent, well, we just can’t leave can we — I mean, what about the oil (which was so totally not a reason for this invasion at all, in any way, whatsoever, I mean, who even knew Iraq had the second largest reserve oil supply in the world)? On the other hand, if things in Iraq are quieting down, we can’t leave lest we disturb the peace. Especially because once we leave, the various factions will have at it. Even Petraeus said so.
Heads they win. Tails they win. We stay in Iraq no matter what. Capiche?
