The Downward Spiral
Ten U.S. servicemen have been killed in the last 24 hours in Iraq, which brings the total to 2,775 American men and women dead -- not to mention the thousands and thousands of innocent Iraqis killed in both the war and the aftermath of sectarian violence that's plunged most of that country into chaos.
The NATO commander in Afghanistan is now saying that mistakes made in the prosecuting of that war have given rise to the resurgence of the Taliban.
I swear, I'd like to argue against the path that this administration has taken in a thoughtful and articulate way -- and I have on occasion.
But right now, all I can think to say is: Dear God, our shit-for-brains president and his cadre of myopic minions are seriously the most tragically incompetent fucking idiots currently walking this increasingly hostile planet.
