Assume Crash Positions
Tuesday, 2007 May 8 - 9:35 pm
The White House recently put out a statement saying we should expect more American casualties in Iraq.

The news headlines blared: U.S. should "brace for more casualties" in Iraq.

Brace?

Exactly what am I supposed to do? How am I supposed to "brace" myself? Put my head in the sand? Cover myself with Saran Wrap and duct tape? Put all my liquids in a one-quart ziploc bag?

Look, when death comes to our troops on an almost-daily basis, I'm long past the point of bracing. I don't need the White House to tell me to expect more casualties; I'm expecting it already.

No, what Mr. Bush and Mr. Tony Snow are really saying is this: "When more Americans die, we can say that we told you it would happen, so obviously it's all part of our master plan." We will continue to win this war, one dead soldier at a time. And we will never stop winning... we will keep getting our troops killed senselessly for a thousand years, if that's what it takes to win.

Because, you know, we don't want to be defeatist.
