Sometime in the next few weeks some random Kagan will appear at the Washington Post or Wall Street Journal to bleat again for THE BEST WAR PLAN EVAH! as it's daily failure is apparent. Yakking about defeating Al Qaeda, with, as the post below demonstrates, the worst plan possible.
But Fred Kagan just bleats on and on and on. The "theoretical advocate" of THE SURGE is as tainted as they come and he adheres to his beloved war fuckup as dearly as he does to his turkey-neck [enjoy the waddle Kim Kagan, enjoy the waddle]:
From time to time, nations face fundamental tests of character. Forced to choose between painful but wise options, and irresponsible ones that offer only temporary relief from pain, a people must decide what price they are willing to pay to safeguard themselves and their children and to do the right thing. America has faced such tests before. Guided by Abraham Lincoln, we met our greatest challenge during the Civil War and overcame it, despite agonizing doubts about the possibility of success even into 1864. The Greatest Generation recovered from the shock of Pearl Harbor and refused to stop fighting until both Germany and Japan had surrendered unconditionally. A similar moment is upon us in Iraq. What will we do?
Again, I suggest WE TELL YOU TO SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU FUCKING FAILURE!
I hope that was diplomatic enough.
