Buckle Up, Kids 

So the administration has made its propaganda paradigm shift at last, no doubt prompted by Dick Cheney's blithe remarks that the insurgency is in its last throes:
"President Bush struck back Friday against growing calls to schedule a U.S. pullout from Iraq, vowing there would be no timetable to withdraw troops.
To do so would be "conceding too much to the enemy," Bush said at a news conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari at the White House.---Bush, Friday"
"That insurgency can go on for any number of years," Rumsfeld said in a U.S. television interview. "Insurgencies tend to go on five, six, eight, 10, 12 years. Foreign forces are not going to repress that insurgency---Rumsfeld, Sunday"
This is the gauntlet Bush has finally thrown down: we're not going anywhere. And if anyone thinks we can stay in that hellhole for "5, 6, 8, 10, 12 years" without a draft, they're living in a fantasy world.

The draft is coming, regardless of how the government spins it. And that is when Americans will fold this hand and cut their losses, once the bodies and the the wounded pile up so high not even George Bush will be able to spin them away. And when they do, they won't give a shit whether we've left any infrastructure in place to keep the whole country from turning into a black hole of civil war. And all we'll have accomplished with this foul agression will have been to make the people we are so afraid of hate us even more. Even Clear Channel and Fox News won't help us then.
