More Awesome War!

I guess some progressives are a little upset that the Dems have capitulated to the Bush Administration's demands to give a blank check to fund the Iraq War for another few months. I guess it does suck a little bit, but I think it's fair to look at the context of this decision. Bush was elected President, and he can choose to pour as much of our tax money into Iraq as he wants. The Republicans f'ing LOVE this war. The troops LOVE this war. So let them own it. Let them bask in it. It's not my place to tell them that it's a huge waste of money.

The Dems are in a pretty nasty position. Everybody (that uses logic) wants to leave Iraq, but nobody wants to give the order. Bush is going to force his successor to actually make a decision. The Republicans still think we're fighting back against the 9/11 attackers. The Democrats have been beaten up so badly that they are afraid to do anything. The troops don't seem to give a sh*t one way or another.

If the Republicans insist on owning every aspect of this war, let them have it. They own it all.
