Strategy Talk

Raw Story has the transcript of Wesley Clark's Democratic Party radio address (given today).

While I agree wholeheartedly with Mister Clark's assessment of the administration's mishandling of the war, I don't see him offering anything we haven't already heard from Mister Bush. And though Clark criticizes the lack of a "real strategy," he doesn't offer one of his own.

And Clark's "There is no alternative to success in Iraq" sounds just as sloganistic to me as Bush's "stay the course."


I sincerely hope that Iraqi's overwhelmingly accept their constitution today. The solution lies with them, not with us.


  1. I'm not so sure acceptance/rejection will matter. If the constitution is accepted, many people will assume the government falsified the results. Rejection will set the process back several months. Either way, we're looking at more bloodshed.

    BTW, did you see the Judith Miller story? She doesn't remember who told her about Valerie Plame? What a traitorous, lying bitch. I hope Fitzgerald nails her ass to the wall and sticks her in jail for life.

  2. Her and several others, TL.

  3. I'm really bummed about Clarks' waffling on Iraq. He seems like a bright enough guy and probably would hand any Republicans' ass back to them in any race -thats if Clark would wise up and get some better help.

  4. Well,

    I've said this before--I served under him in Kosovo, and I didn't campaign for him last time, and I won't the next time.
