We're Winning

Despite declaring "Mission Accomplished!" a couple of years ago, President Bush has now stated that "Absolutely, we're winning..".

This of course contradicts "mission accomplished" (ie job done) and the actual situation of the ground in Iraq, which is now embroiled in a low level civil war.

The reality of course makes uncomfortable viewing for the President, as mid terms will be held in less than two weeks; where it is expected that the Republican party will be on the receiving end of a well deserved drubbing from the voters, for the mess that they have inflicted on the Iraqi people and the servicemen who are dying for a lost cause.

President Bush has used recent press conferences to "very magnanimously" state that he is not satisfied, and to tease the audience and voters that he is aware of their concerns and that there will be change of course.

I think it unlikely that this President will voluntarily change course, people who receive their instructions direct from God tend not to be very flexible.

A change of course will happen, once the reality of partition takes place and there is no longer an Iraq to stabilise. In the meantime, many more innocent people and servicemen will die.

However, the soap opera of Saddam's trials will continue. It is quite possible that by the time the trials have finished, Iraq will have ceased to exist and there will be no lawful body to carry out the sentence.

Mission accomplished!
