The F.U. Era is Over

It's been awhile since I've caught anyone promising ponies in 6 months. Now it seems we're all just supposed to accept that, well, we've just got to stick it out another 5 to 10 years. Because then the ponies will come!

BAGHDAD — The United States is no closer to achieving its goals in Iraq than it was a year ago but a quick military withdrawal could lead to massive chaos and even genocide, according to a report released Sunday by a U.S. think tank.

The U.S. Institute of Peace report was written by experts who advised the Iraq Study Group, a panel mandated by Congress to offer recommendations on U.S. policy in Iraq in 2006.


“The U.S. is no closer to being able to leave Iraq than it was a year ago,” it concluded. “Lasting political development could take five to 10 years of full, unconditional U.S. commitment to Iraq.”

And anyone who thinks that's a bad idea is a patchouli scented dirty fucing hippie unfit to dine on quail with Cokie Roberts and David Broder.
