Well, according to General Petraeus, we can’t leave because we’re doing too well–of course, before we couldn’t leave because we weren’t doing well enough. There are no meaningful benchmarks for when we CAN leave–actually there are, but if I told you what they were, I’d have to kill you. In the meantime, our wannabe tin soldier has decided to be easy on the troops and ordered that TDYs would only last 12 months instead of 15. HEY DINGLEBERRY! Consecutive 12 month shifts hurts just as bad as consecutive 15 month ones.

Cheney’s dismissive ‘So?’ on Iraq prompts swift elaboration“WASHINGTON — With a one-word comment — “So?” — Vice President Dick Cheney has reignited the debate about whether the White House cares that most Americans do not support the war in Iraq.
“The comment came in Amman, Jordan, during an interview with ABC’s Martha Raddatz, who prefaced a question to Cheney by saying, ‘Two-thirds of Americans say it’s not worth fighting.’
“‘So?’ Cheney interjected.
“‘So?’ Raddatz replied. ‘You don’t care what the American people think?’
“‘No,’ Cheney said. ‘I think you cannot be blown off course by the fluctuations in the public opinion polls.'”

There you have it folks, opposition to the war in Iraq is just a fluctuation in public opinion polls. The administration doesn’t care SQUAT about what anyone thinks–as long as BIG OIL is making profits.

Fred’n’Bert took off early today for the Easter holiday and I will be taking off Monday as well–BB on Wednesday with more coverage of Our World and welcome to it…
Cheney continued with standard White House rhetoric about improving conditions in Iraq.”

(AP) Analysis: The Bush take on Iraq opinion “election exit poll surveys by The Associated Press and television networks found 55 percent saying the U.S. should withdraw some or all of its troops from Iraq.
The president says Democrats have it all wrong: the public doesn’t want the troops pulled out [~] they want to give the military more support in its mission.”
