IT'S CHRISTMAS IN STALINGRAD
The war in Iraq is nearly-over, and we are losing. Someday, the President can explain to us what "winning" was, from his cell in the Hague. Vice President Cheney will be housed at Spandau in Albert Speer's cubicle. We're circling-the-drain in Iraq. We are being-removed. It is ending. The high-flown rhetoric has no-effect anymore. It's not late-2001 anymore, and the approval-ratings are never going to rise again. The public is tired of the war. Soon, he'll be commanding units that no-longer exist, on territory we no-longer hold. By February of 1943, the Battle of Stalingrad was over, and the 6th Army was trapped and vanquished, hauled-off to gulags in the East. We do not need a repeat of this outcome in Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, or the entire region, for a constellation of semi-permanent military bases to control the oil for multinationals.
