Tragedy, Farce, and Worse

[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif]The last-minute Surprise is a great American political tradition, but the Bush administration should get the award for the most preposterous and strategically wacky.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif]But no one has yet explained why precisely the American people should celebrate what is so obviously a victory of Shiite ultras bent on establishing a fundamentalist regime.

[FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif]The "Islamo-fascists" that the pundit class warns us about are the group that wins if Saddam is killed. His execution virtually guarantees further civil war and American deaths. Every mother and father of an enlisted person serving in Iraq should shudder. [/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif]Further, it unleashes the Shiite death-squads against the Sunni minority, as never before, and inspires the Sunnis to step up extreme suicidal tactics, while leaving the few Christians and handful of Jews remaining in Iraq to the mercy of their sworn enemies.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif]And this is supposed to be good news?
