Can anyone explain to me what this means?
New military tactics in Iraq are working but the best way to honor U.S. soldiers is "by beginning to bring them home," Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton told war veterans Monday.What New War are we preparing for? Do we need to bring the troops home to fight the Kwazy Kossacks?
"It's working. We're just years too late in changing our tactics," she said. "We can't ever let that happen again. We can't be fighting the last war. We have to keep preparing to fight the new war."
Note the shift (from April 11,2007):
First, we've got to face up to the reality that the situation in Iraq is deteriorating. It is not improving, and all the happy talk in the world will not fix the grim reality on the ground. My plan to end the war confronts that reality head on. I introduced legislation called "The Iraq Troop Protection and Reduction Act." Under it, we would begin redeployment of our troops out of Iraq in 90 days. I have been pushing this plan for almost two years. The bill would fight the President's escalation by capping the number of troops in Iraq. It would also prohibit sending more troops to escalate a failed strategy.Doesn't that make you want to vomit? All the happy talk in the world won't fix it -- but the troop increase Petraeus wanted, that you opposed for two years, will. Looky looky: Hillary Clinton was flat out wrong.
