Daily Kos: "And a year from now, I'll be very surprised if there is not some grand square in Baghdad that is named after President Bush. There is no doubt that, with the exception of a very small number of people close to a vicious regime, the people of Iraq have been liberated and they understand that they've been liberated.' - Richard Perle, 9/22/03"Al Franken pointed out that there may be a crater in Baghdad called George W Bush crater. Actually, that's his skull. Bones jokes aside, I'm sure Bush has convinced himself that Perle was right, but that it might take 10 more years, and he might actually have to buy the real estate and name it after himself.
So, I wonder how Richard Perle is showing his surprise today? I wonder if any of the cheerleaders for Bush are actually thinking, gee, we were really wrong. I can't help but think that they giggle while they say it, and then check the profit margins on their Iraq investments. After all, bombs are cheap compared to electric grids and sewer systems.
