Army Captain's Simple Demonstration: How to Win in
Officer Killed in Battle, but His Ideas Live On
Dec. 15, 2006 — - President Bush has spent the last few weeks engaged
in complex briefings with senior military officers, State Department officials
and outside experts as he tries to come up with a new plan to achieve victory in
But a young captain serving in Iraq's violent Al Anbar Province has
offered a simple explanation of what the problem was in Iraq and how to solve
it. Among his observations is the importance of having a moustache in

PowerPoint presentations, the young captain's presentation, which has been

was killed by the same improvised explosive device that killed Maj. Megan
McClung of the Marine Corps last Wednesday.

And THIS IS THAT POWERPOINT.

And don't think it's about oil. If it were, the oil companies would be on DubDub's case on this....bad for the image (also, gas prices would be up to $5.00 by now). The real reason is so insidious, I hesitate to mention it. But the bottom line is after all of this, we will be sending 30,000 more men and women to die for Bush's evangelism.
This is not war, this is murder. And if this is not an impeachable offense, I do not know what is.
