MCF in Iraq

Yes, I mean a Mongolian Cluster Fuck.

A Pentagon report acquired by the New York Times reveals a rather startling (but not unexpected) revelation - that only about a third of the nascent Iraqi Army is fit to do anything on its own. The rest either need 'support' or are still in training. Two years after the Dear Leader strutted across a carrier flight deck in his best GI Joe uniform.

This stinks, folks. Our former Viceroy in Iraq, L. Paul Bremer, should be strung up by his testicles and dragged howling through the streets over broken glass for his stupidity, then locked in a bamboo cage and poked with sharp sticks. His abrupt firing of the entire Iraqi Army in 2003 left thousands unemployed and resentful. Bingo! Instant insurgent fodder.

I suppose we should get used to watching people die in Iraq - at the rate we're going, the Iraqi Army and police forces will be fully trained by, oh, about 2009. Just in time for the GOP to blame the next President over "Who lost Iraq?"
