Logic, Dubya style.

Continuing his cross-country stump to shore up support for his failing policies in Iraq, Dubya today offered yet another reason why the US should stay in Iraq. Referring to the over 1800 US troops who have so far died in his Mideast military adventure, the Prez said:

"We owe them something. We will finish the task that they gave their lives for. We'll honor their sacrifice by staying on the offensive against the terrorists and building strong allies in Afghanistan and Iraq that will help us win and fight ... the war on terror."

Let's see if we understand this correctly. Because so many US troops have died in an unnecessary and (now) unwinnable war in Iraq, the best way to honor their memory is to sacrifice still more US troops on the altar of Dubya's big mistake?

We must have missed logic class the day they covered that argument.

Newsfare translated today's Bush Speak.

We are fighting because we were fighting. Now we must never stop the war, and our reason for fighting it grows stronger with each soldier who dies.

Because nothing in the world is worse than admitting you were wrong.
