The Baghdad Tea Party

Does anyone else see the irony in this?

The Washington Post:
The vice president cited the darkest days of the American Revolution, when the war was going badly and ragtag rebels were ready to go home until George Washington rallied them. "They stayed in the fight, and America won the war," he said. "From that day to this, our country has always counted on the bravest among us to answer the call of duty."

So, to justify keeping US soldiers in Iraq fighting against rebellion that wants to oust a foreign occupier, Cheney points to the American revolution – in which we were the insurgents fighting an occupying force – as the reason to stay.

He's got gigantic balls, that's for sure. Well, that, or he's insane.

Gee, and all this time I thought that it was the Sunnis trying to get their power back. I guess all those innocent Iraqis getting bombed were just a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The insurgents just couldn't hit any infidels with all those bombs.

I read in the paper today that the insurgents killed three Sunnis who were campaigning in support of the new Iraqi constitution. Since most of the insurgents are former Saddam Sunni hacks it shows that they are more interested in stopping a free Iraq then pushing out an occupying force.
