Sidney Blumenthal reveals that George W. Bush is still listening to the neocons because, you know, they've gotten everything right so far.

Bush's touted but unexplained "new way forward" (his version of the ISG's "the way forward") may be the first order of battle, complete with details of units, maps and timetables, ever posted on the Web site of a think tank. "I will not be rushed," said Bush. But apparently he has already accepted the latest neoconservative program, artfully titled with catchphrases appealing to his desperation -- "Choosing Victory: A Plan for Success in Iraq" -- and available for reading on the site of the American Enterprise Institute.
" Victory is still an option in Iraq," it states. "America, a country of 300 million people with a GDP of $12 trillion, and more than 1 million soldiers and marines can regain control of Iraq, a state the size of California with a population of 25 million and a GDP under $100 billion."
Basically what it amounts to is the Bush has bought into a PowerPoint solution to the Iraq mess. It won't work, of course, but what of it as long as he is having fun.

Gee--sounds just like Vietnam in 1963, except the Vietnam GDP was probably a tiny percentage of $100 billion! No wonder they're enthusiastic for a victory.

Bush has two main goals. To please his Israeli-American Zionists and to keep the mess in Iraq going until he's out of office and can pawn it off on the next prez.
