The headline referring to Bush's speech on Iraq strategy, carps in the most ridiculous way possible:
Bush offers no date for Iraq victoryThis is almost too boggling even to analyze.
ANNAPOLIS, United States (AFP) - President George W. Bush sought to overcome mounting worries about his Iraq war strategy, but would not set a date for a US pullout, warning that victory requires "time and patience."
Note the petulance, and ironic lack of patience, in childishly demanding a date for victory, as if that were ever possible.
Note also the equating of victory with pullout, which is either naive, or a deliberate attempt to create a meme that conflates the two in an Orwellian sense, as a declared pullout date is really a defeat.
It's beyond parody.
