More Dubya Talk

Some weeks ago, at a press conference, Mister Bush stated, "I think [the terrorists] are losing. That's why they're still fighting.

Courtesy of Rising Hegemon, this exchange from last night's Bill O'Reilly Rant between Bill and retired Air Force Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney:
Bill: Insurgent attacks on a daily basis have almost doubled from 2004 to 2005. What does that say?

The General: It says that the terrorists, the insurgents, are fighting even harder because they know they are losing.

So it looks like that's the official Rovewellian position on things; as long as the insurgents keep fighting, they're losing, and the harder they fight, the worse they're losing.

Let's hope they never stop fighting, huh?

McInerny, by the way, was co-author of a 2004 campaign monograph titled "How We Won in Afghanistan."

Yes, Virginia, irony is still dead.


  1. So with that analogy since American forces are fighting very hard does that also mean we are also losing?

  2. The analogy is so dumb it's meaningless. I think the fairest estimate is that we aren't winning.
