"We're making progress because we've got a strategy for victory. And we're making progress, because the men and women of the United States military are showing magnificent courage. And they're making important sacrifices that have brought Iraq to a historic moment..."
Just unpack that first part in your brain... we are making progress because we have a strategy for victory. Is there any doubt in anyone's mind anywhere within the sound of my hoarse, shouting voice that 1984 has come and gone and we are all now living in Oceania?
"Eurasia is our enemy. Eurasia has always been our enemy. East Asia is our ally. East Asia has always been our ally...
I particularly like the second part... "We are making progress because the men and women of the United States military are showing magnificent courage. And they are making important sacrifices..." So progress is being measured by the number of body bags we are filling or the number of military families we are destroying or bankrupting?
So... this is victory and progress?
Make mine vanilla, thanks...
