Memo'd to Death

Yet another British memo shows that the realists were on the wrong side of the Atlantic as Bush and his death-loving necrocons rushed to war with visions of ticker-tape parades and celebrating Iraqis in their pinheads:

Saying that "we need to be sure that the outcome of the military action would match our objective," the memo's authors point out, "A post-war occupation of Iraq could lead to a protracted and costly nation-building exercise." The authors add, "As already made clear, the U.S. military plans are virtually silent on this point."

If only Tony Blair had had the manhood to tell Bush to take his incipient war and shove it.
