Making Daddy proud

From last fall:

And, in discussing the threat posed by Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, Bush said: "After all, this is the guy who tried to kill my dad."

This President is not too keen on using our troops as peacekeepers, but he doesn’t mind using them essentially as assassins to rub out particular individuals to assuage a personal grudge.

We have gone to war without real provocation, alienated our allies, continue to lose troops almost everyday in a rather hopeless quagmire and have forfeited our credibility and moral authority for the foreseeable future. We killed two lousy human beings in Mosul and may yet kill their despicable father, but the costs have been deep, far-reaching and are far from over. But at least the prodigal son finally has “accomplished” something for daddy. Kinda brings a tear to your eye, don’t it?
