"EVERYONE AGREES THAT FAILURE IN IRAQ WOULD BE DISASTROUS": The Talking Point That Is A Recipe For Further Disaster"

Once again, the Vice President reiterated the "Everyone agrees that failure in Iraq would be disastrous" talking point on Fox Friendly News Sunday. It's another one of those "Do you want America to lose?" idioms that pretty much leaves you with one answer otherwise you've pretty much admitted that you're continuing to beat your wife. What the Vice President wants you to believe is that, if you don't want failure you'd have to choose the President's plan. What the Vice President wants you to believe is that there is a Victory ä to be had. What the Vice President doesn't want you to believe is that failure has already be achieved. Simply, what the Vice President presents is a scenario that succumbed to this administration's blunders long ago. When the talking point is raised - and trust me, they'll continue to shove it down our throat until we swallow it - by the administration and their spokespersons on the radio dial, we need to put the response in terms these gluttons for war can understand.
If you burn a roast, cooking it any longer doesn't make it any less burnt. If you continue to cook that roast, sooner or later the roast will disintegrate into ashes, and if you don't turn off the oven, the oven will explode in flame and burn down the entire house.
While one of the options available to turn failure into success is to learn from your mistake and take corrective action. Sometimes that corrective action is to stop incinerating innocent lives and other country's land and go out for dinner.
