I am so happy that President Obama has declared that the combat mission of our troops is now officially over, in Iraq.
In fact, I am tickled to no end.
Is it just me? Or are we seeing an escalation in violence towards the remaining U.S. military presence?
The bottom line here is that we may be seeing what can happen when you announce something is over, long before it really is. Remember President Bush on that aircraft carrier?
Note how in the clip that I posted from CNN, Rick Sanchez seems utterly amazed that something like this could happen. He cannot seem to fathom how an Iraqi soldier, one whom we worked so hard to train, could just up and start killing Americans after Obama said it was over.
Sanchez is usually clueless, we all know that. But he really doesn't get this one. He is in a state of bewilderment, he is confusion personified.
Oh well. No matter.
Obama says the war in Iraq is over. That means it's over, so what are we worried about? Probably just another fluke.
