I seem to be seeing a whole bunch of news and blog posts today about Bush wanting to keep troops in Iraq indefinitely .... sorta like Korea or West Germany.


Where have these folks been? We're building a gazillion dollar embassy there, permanent military bases, and show no signs of leaving militarily. It's a neocon wet dream to have American bases in Iraq forever, and has been so stated for years. Is this really news? If so, it goes a long way to explaining the media's participation and willful ignorance of what's actually been happening in Iraq.

Anyone who actually thought it was Bush's plan to "win" and withdraw simply hasn't been paying attention.
