A Rosy View

A Rosy View

I am utterly dismayed by the media coverage of the sectarian violence in Iraq. And worse still was watching the various Sunday talk shows with the talking heads all doing their best to undercut the clarity of the mission set forth by the Bush administration. It is pretty obvious that the MSM doesn't get it. The news is willfully ignoring the real conditions on the ground in Iraq.

After watching Donald Rumsfeld and General Pace field questions last week you'd think that the MSM and the rest of the nation would finally get it through their heads that there isn't even a hint of civil war brewing in Iraq. (I can't believe the poll numbers.) The bombing of the Shia shrine in Samarra was an act of desperation and was nothing more than an indication that the insurgents, or al Qaeda types have failed (in their last throes) to win the support the Iraqi people.

And just because the Iraqi election took place three months ago there is no reason to be concerned that the elected officials have yet to form parliment. Bush has made it pretty unclear that US troops will be in Iraq for as long as it takes. And if that means two or 10 years, you can be sure that many will be sacrificed, whether they want to or not as long as Bush is the commander-in-chief.

If you don't believe me, just ask Donald Rumsfeld.
