Site Meter Ogre's Politics & Views: Exit Strategy

It seems the tables have turned to the other hand these days in politics. When Clinton got involved in various quagmires like Somalia, et al., it was the Republicans claiming he had no exit strategy (and he didn't -- he honestly planned to leave troops as long as the UN wanted them). However, as the shoe is on the other hand now, it's the Democrats who are whining about the "exit strategy" in the newly-freed-from-a-dictator Iraq.

Since there are also now allegedly "right-wing" media touring the area, we decided to have some of our "friends" in the military apply a few selected bugs to a few members of the "embedded" media to record some of the goings on. Here's a few transcripts, accurately recorded word-for-word, as transcribed by the fully trained team of typewriter monkeys:

"You, camera-boy infidel -- you stand over there and take picture. I stand over here and shoot gun at other infidels and you take picture of me. My gun, blessed be the 72 virgins, can shoot that infidel tank if I have faith. My exit strategy is to join the 72 virgins before tea time this afternoon."
