Surrender? But we won!

Lately, all over the interwebs (such as here, here, and here), I’ve seen that the urge to pull out of Iraq is concidered a “surrender” by the right. Surrender? But we won, didn’t we? By declaring victory, by its very definition, we can’t surrender.

Besides, I thought we had basically proven that our enemies were not in Iraq, and that we were invading it under false pretenses. But, wait….Bush still insists that Osama bin Laden and Iraq are connected! You know, because Osama couldn’t have mentioned Iraq because it helps to build his case that “the western world is at war against Islam”.

I’m rambling, though. I guess what I’m trying to say is that violence breeds violence, and that the Terror situation in the Middle East can only be solved with diplomacy. Waging “War on terror” is like a hunger strike against famine, or a telethon against couch potatoism. We’re just going in circles.

Um…let’s see. A political post without Kucinich? I’ll fix that.

Have a solemn September 11. Mourn for those that died, for the state of the world, and for the mistakes that both sides of the “war on terror” continue to make.

  1. That’s a very clever way of putting it.

    So true.
