Mission Accomplished!

Comment from a guy who thinks losing the gold standard is the cause of many woes...

Orange Punch - Mission Accomplished! Zarqui's dead. Saddam's in the klink. Iraq has a democratic government.

Time for the U.S. to leave.

Three years ago, on May 1, 2003, President Bush stood on an aircraft carrier and proclaimed, "Mission Accomplished!" (see photo).


Well, it's taken three years longer than that, but as we said back when I was in the U.S. Army a quarter century ago, "Close enough for government work."

Outside folks scamming off big government contracts in Iraq, support for the "war" in Iraq is getting hard to find.
