One man's failure is a neocon's success

Many have been pointing out that Iraq's alleged constitution basically turns Iraq into Iran, and that this is obviously a failure of the last great excuse for the Blair-Bush Project. But is it? Xymphora points out that the critical language about the role of Islam in Iraq wasn't merely accepted reluctantly by US Ambassador to Iraq Zalmay Khalilzad--he actually pushed for it!

So Iraq tumbles into an even bloodier civil war, leading to its eventual breakup. Many would see this as a failure; but many are not neocons. The Balkanization of the Middle East suits their evil purposes just fine.

Maybe Bush isn't happily taking five weeks of vacation because he's out of touch--maybe it's because he's getting everything he wanted.
