Batters up in the blame game
By Bill Cope
As everything the opposition predicted about Iraq comes true--the endless insurgency, the rise of theocratic rule, the rise in Iranian influence, the squandering of American resources, the squandering of American prestige, the squandering of American soldiers, the civil war no one dares to call a civil war, the civilian slaughter, the chaos that spreads across the Middle East like a plague from an ancient time--I'm throwing myself into the briar patch here by making yet another prediction. It's a habit I generally prefer to steer clear of--predicting. On paper, at least. As those in the Bush administration should know by now--but probably don't since they seem incapable of learning anything new--there's nothing that can haunt your future quite like a past prediction.
