    President GWBush said the same thing in 2004 to Matt Lauer on NBC “President Bush: I don’t think you can win it”.

    The UK General reinforcing that 6 years later is re-telling of at least one thing – the Anglo-American axis of virtue is timeless.

    And you are of course correct on their modus operandi (see my conversation with a pooka rabbit that had just returned from the Holy Lands: )

    Here is a pertinent snippet from President Bush’s interview – see my question to you at the end:

    Lauer: You said to me a second ago, one of the things you’ll lay out in your vision for the next four years is how to go about winning the war on terror. That phrase strikes me a little bit. Do you really think we can win this war on terror in the next four years?

    President Bush: I have never said we can win it in four years.

    Lauer: So I’m just saying can we win it? Do you see that?

    President Bush: I don’t think you can win it. But I think you can create conditions so that those who use terror as a tool are less acceptable in parts of the world — let’s put it that way. I have a two-pronged strategy. On the one hand is to find them before they hurt us, and that’s necessary. I’m telling you it’s necessary. The country must never yield, must never show weakness and must continue to lead. To find Al-Qaeda affiliates who are hiding around the world and want to harm us and bring ’em to justice — we’re doing a good job of it. I mean we are dismantling the Al Qaedaas we knew it. The longterm strategy is to spread freedom and liberty, and that’s really kind of an interesting debate. There’s some who say, ‘You know certain people can’t self-govern and accept, you know, a formal democracy.’ I just strongly disagree with that. I believe that democracy can take hold in parts of the world that are now non-democratic and I think it’s necessary in order to defeat the ideologies of hate.


    President Bush: Now, let me finish for a second. Not in Pakistan. You mentioned Pakistan. It was an unpopular move in Pakistan as you might recall. And yet it was the right thing to do. When I’m making my calculations and I say to the Taliban, ‘Cough up Al Qaeda or face serious consequences,’ I’m not doing a focus group in Pakistan, Matt. I made decisions on what I think is best for this country, and yet the decision to remove the Taliban in Afghanistan was unpopular in Pakistan at the time. And in other places it wasn’t so popular either, I might add — same in Iraq, there’s no question.

    Lauer: Iraq was the turning point — wasn’t it, really?

    President Bush: Well, it depends on what country you’re talking to. But yes, the decision in Iraq was a hard decision. There’s no doubt in my mind we made the right decision, and there’s no doubt in my mind the world is better off with Saddam Hussein in a prison cell. When Iraq emerges a free society, the people will see the wisdom of the decision we made.

    Okay – so we understand all this.

    But as you already know, the Bush White House Advisor was also quoted as matter of factly stating in the New York Times in 2004:

    ‘We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.’ — Senior Bush Advisor, The New York Times, October 17, 2004

    Therefore, practically speaking, what can one do about this imperial craftsmanship of histor’s actors – other than judiciously study the shit left behind in their previous fait accompli while they go on to construct new ones, just as the empire’s minion suggests?
