No matter what happens in Iraq, the Bush administration and John McCain always have an answer: 6 more months.
When the "surge" began a year ago, they told America things would get better by September. In September, they said we'd know more by spring. And this week, General Petraeus is on Capitol Hill asking for—you guessed it—6 more months. Senator McCain and President Bush couldn't agree more.
They don't have a plan for getting us out of Iraq. So they're trying to sell endless war on an installment plan.
Six more months won't change anything—except the body count and the price tag.
