So Much For Being in the Last Throes

So there you are, leaving the bar with your new squeeze. You're both stumbling, yapping about those special things that only intoxicated new lovers talk about. It's late, and you decide to go back to his place. You crawl into bed, thinking a quickie would be nice as you both have to go to work in the morning.

But after what seems like hours of fruitless humping, you realize what you got yourself into. Neither you, nor your partner are anywhere near the "last throes" and the insurgency has no intentions of surrendering anytime soon. You may hope and pray for quick withdrawal, but alas, it wasn't meant to be.

Once Congress voted that fateful day in October, 2002 authorizing George Bush to use force in Iraq, we should have known what was going to happen. Hindsight is 20/20. But now we're stuck. We anticipated "using overwhelming force to quickly win clearly-defined objectives that involve American interests." But Congress and the American people were duped.

According to Rumsfeld and the other war criminals at the Pentagon, this little tryst that we consented to is now a "generational conflict akin to the Cold War, the kind of struggle that might last decades."

And damn, are we gonna be sore in the morning.

    ...which is what they were hoping for all along...

    George is going at it while we, the American Public, think to ourselves...."White, we should definitely paint the ceiling white."

    Or in your case, Addison "Blue. We should definitely get blue pillow cases to match the sheets."

    I have to say, one of the most unusual, and yet most eloquent, descriptions of the position our missionaries have gotten themselves into over there .. thanks.

    Morning? What morning? This is going to last the whole endless night.

    Rather than a fun drunk one-nighter, I think it's more akin to going to a cheap brothel, that turns out to cost a lot of money, and nobody really has any fun or gets their rocks off.

    And they stole all the money from us to do it.
