File This Under: Too Little Too Late, Asshole

From the front page of British Prime Minister Tony Blair and U.S. President George W. Bush, in a joint media conference, said the war in Iraq did not go as smoothly as they had hoped. The two leaders admitted they had made mistakes, but deflected questions about possible troop withdrawals.

So it turns out all those “experts” and “facts” and “unpatriotic people who would dare question the president’s motives and decisions” were right, invading Iraq at all, and especially for made up reasons, was a bad idea. And now that Bush and Blair have brought a possibly irreversible shit storm down on the world, they’re going to come back and sheepishly say they made a mistake? Man! Let’s just get on with it and get these arrogant, closed-minded, destroyers out of office and get some people in there who can start repairing the damage they’ve caused. It’s going to be a long and difficult job, but the sooner we start the sooner the bleeding stops and the sooner we can reverse Bush’s vicious cycle of war and turn it into a virtuous cycle of peace. Cheers!
