"Containment" not "Victory"

They're circling the waggons now. Just like I predicted in a column from November of last year. I cited this quote by Bush as Texas Governor ...

"Victory means an exit stragety, and it's important for the President to explain to us what the exit strategy is," said Bush referring to American troop deployment in Bosnia on Clinton's orders.

And today, MSNBC repots the White House has given up hope for "Victory" in Iraq. But according to Bush's definition, getting out means victory. Of course, he sort of swept that under the rug, "flip-flopping" as he so frequently does.

From MSNBC ...
May 22, 2006 - An old word is gaining new currency in Washington: containment. You may be hearing a lot more of it as the Bush administration hunkers down for its final two years. Containment of Iraq’s low-level civil war, which shows every sign of persisting for years despite the new government inaugurated this week. Containment of Iran’s nuclear power, which may lead to a missile defense system in Europe. Containment of the Islamism revived by Hamas and Hizbullah, by the Sunni suicide bombers in Iraq, as well as by the “Shiite Crescent”—as Jordan’s King Abdullah once called it—running from Iran through Southern Iraq and into the Gulf.
And to answer that pressing question, NO, they haven't gotten smart about their blood-drenched policies. They're just putting on a different face to appease the New American Demographic.

Nah-nah-na-na, nah-nah-na-na, hey-hey-hey ... Good-byeeee.

Midterm elections are only six months away!
