Shorter National Intelligence Estimate

Two words say it all: We're fucked.

Well, and the Iraqis too, but we already knew that. They've been fucked since the day the bombs started falling in 2003. Ah well, at least given the insurgents' recent success in shooting down American helicopters, we aren't going to see any Saigon moment out of this war. No helicopters taking off from the roof of the American Embassy with frantic people hanging off the skids. Nope. More a Dien Bien Phu moment. Complete with shot-down aircraft crashing out of the sky, except choppers rather than C-47's this time.

  1. Yup... Fucked.

    But hey.

    It was a pretty good 300 year run, don't you think?

    Hey, it was just an experiment, don't sweat it.

    From the ashes will rise better. It's always been that way.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
