OK, there aren't a lot of swamps in Iraq, so maybe qWagmire is wrong. Iraq does have a lot of sand, so alert reader Seth proposes qWicksand.

Both qWagmire and qWicksand convey that trapped, endless, sinking feeling -- and both, of course, have the "W" for the ... the ... the ... person who got us into sucked into them.

On the other hand, qWagmire is starting to propagate, so perhaps it has sufficient power, and why tamper with success?

UPDATE: Of course there were swamps in Iraq -- the famous reed marshes that Saddam, in one of his evil acts, drained. qWagmire it is.
