Politics - Iraq War: What's The Plan, Man?

Professional idiot and private cretin, Mitch "I Look Just Like Your Gramma, The One Who Terrifies You" McConnell is saying in public that the surge will be over in March.
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said on CBS's Face The Nation on Sunday that he expects the US "surge" in Iraq to come to an end in September, a sentiment that deviates greatly from the official White House and military stance.

"I think that everybody anticipates that this is going to be a new strategy in the fall. I don't think we'll have the same level of troops, in all likelihood, that we have now," he said. "We're not [in Iraq] forever."
Well, that would sure as hell be news to that other professional idiot and private cretin, Commander Awol von Bunnypants:
WASHINGTON — President Bush would like to see the U.S. military provide long-term stability in Iraq as it has in South Korea, where thousands of American troops have been based for more than half a century, the White House said Wednesday.

White House spokesman Tony Snow told reporters Bush believes U.S. forces eventually will end their combat role in Iraq but will continue to be needed in the country to deter threats and to help handle potential crises, as they have done in South Korea.
I don't like the sound of that "eventually," especially when it comes from the mouth of The Mouth of Sauron.

Meanwhile, one pair of the "boots on the ground" opines:
Also this morning, appearing on Fox News Sunday US General David Petraeus said that the "surge" strategy would not be completed by September.

"I do not" think the job will be done by Semptember, said Petraeus. "I think that we have a lot of heavy lifting to do."

The White House expressed a similar sentiment in the daily press briefing on June 13th.

"It is humanly impossible to solve all this before September," said White House Press Secretary Tony Snow of the "surge."
Tony, you lying shitbag, it was supposed to have been solved years ago. Or have you forgotten "Mission Accomplished" starring Commander Codpiece?
