One of the powertools steps on his dick again

Shorter verbatim Ass Rocket: (emphasis mine)
My biggest concern about the surge is that we are signing on to the concept that "success" in Iraq means not having much violence in Baghdad. This may be a standard of success that cannot be achieved in the time the administration has available, and it isn't obvious to me that peace in Baghdad is a prerequisite to achieving our strategic goals. Nevertheless, President Bush has concluded, and has stated publicly, that in his view, a far lower level of violence in Baghdad is indeed a prerequisite to success; hence the surge. I hope that he is right in believing that increased American force in Baghdad can make a big enough difference to matter.
Oh? What are the strategic goals? This is at least one of them, according to Jet-Butt's hero.
We are removing a source of violence and instability, and laying the foundation of peace...
President George W. Bush, June 28th, 2003

Jeez, John, what happened to the liberation met with flowers and candies?
