One of the most important and lucid blog entries I've read all year. A must-read.

It's funny in a disconcerting way how not too long ago Bush/Cheney predicted we would be greeted with open-arms in Iraq, as liberators, like the scene when Dorothy and gang show up at the Emerald City after killing the witch. Yet now the same people have completely shifted 180 degrees, breathlessly warning that if we leave Iraq will descend into utter chaos, with mass genocide, blood in the streets, etc.

How did we go from the Emerald City to hell in such short order? Oh, I forgot, the former was to get us into the war, the latter is to keep us from leaving.
