Bush Makes Surprise Iraq Visit: Today's Cartoon

You know, if by "current successes" President Bush means sneaking into Iraq and delivering a speech inside a remote airbase in Anbar province, then that's good enough for me as well... especially if it serves to create a context (in his mind) that will enable him to start thinking about troop withdrawal, without making him feel like a loser.

To me, it only makes sense that if the justifications for going to war were never really valid to begin with, then neither do the reasons have to be for getting back out. The way I see it, since President Bush is the one creating the "objective" in Iraq, only he can envision what "success" should look like... or at least when to apply the term to the actual situation on the ground and call it a V-Day.
