Mission Inarticulable

U.S. president George Bush, in his weekly radio address:
"The best way to honor the sacrifice of our fallen troops is to complete the mission and win the war on terror."

Probably inspirational words to someone, but it bears repeating that the mission — separating Saddam Hussein from his weapons of mass destruction (if any) — was complete before Bush so much as ordered troops onto Iraqi soil.

As for the "war on terror", whatever it is, can it be won by stubbornly maintaining U.S. occupation of Iraq, fueling anti-western sentiment in the process?
