This Isn't A War - And We Aren't Liberators
Thom Hartmann performs a bit of needed re-framing:
Every time the media - or a Democrat - uses the phrase "War in Iraq" they are promoting one of Karl Rove's most potent Republican Party frames.
There is no longer a war against Iraq.
It ended in May of 2003, when George W. Bush stood below a "Mission Accomplished" sign aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln and correctly declared that we had "victoriously" defeated the Iraqi army and overthrown their government...
... What we have now is an occupation of Iraq.
We've accomplished what we ostensibly set out to do in Iraq. Saddam is out of power, and a new democratic government has been installed. That government is now clearing its throat, checking its watch, and glancing meaningfully at the door. There were no WMD's. The insurgency will end, and the country will be that much more stable, when the occupiers go home.
