De Ni(a)le is NOT Just a River in Egypt

It's Not His Fault!
The gentleman you see here, and I use this term with deliberate and heartfelt respect, the general commanding our forces in Iraq, is NOT responsible for the terrible mess in which he is forced to work, to salvage what he can of the quagmire that is now Iraq, which a bumbling amateur, who is unfortunately our president, has bequeathed to our magnificent military forces.

As Publius Quintilius Varo said many centuries ago: "Easy is the descent into hell, but to retrace one's steps, and return to the air above, there is the task, there lies the difficulty".

It's time to get out of Iraq, an impossible and unnecessary mission, which is now destroying to capability of our armed forces to respond to crises which are critical to the survival of our great nation.
