But now, a small but increasingly influential group of neocons are again helping steer Iraq policy. A key part of the new Iraq plan that President Bush is expected to announce next week — a surge in U.S. troops coupled with a more focused counterinsurgency effort — has been one of the chief recommendations of these neocons since the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003.It is Neocon II: Electric Boogaloo!! It's Awesome!!
This group — which includes William Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard magazine, and Frederick W. Kagan, a military analyst at a prominent think tank, the American Enterprise Institute — was expressing concerns about the administration's blueprint for Iraq even before the invasion almost four years ago.
So what lessons did we learn from the our first colossal error? Apparently we weren't listening hard enough to the neo-conservatives. Consequently, we really need to follow their recommendations. Why? Because they are apparently due to be correct about something any time soon.
I mean sweet Jesus on a taco (I think I just made that up), what are these people smoking/snorting/rubbing on their bellybutton/injecting/bathing in? We should be running as fast as we can away from any ideas they have about anything. For instance, if Sen. Lieberman suggested that I have mac n' cheese for a snack; I would run like Jesse Owens in rocket shoes away from any processed cheese product.
