George's good fortune

Reader comment on item: Predicting Iraq's Bleak Future
in response to reader comment: A view from the left

Submitted by Doug Corrigan (United States), Jul 21, 2009 at 15:40

It was George Bush's good fortune to be able to bring his war in Iraq to a near-successful conclusion. In being unable to 'see it through to the end', due to his term running out, George will, I think, turn out to be very lucky. Obie, on the other hand, will likely turn out to be very unlucky. I prognosticate the region will explode in factional warfare (these are moslems after all, and what else ... except kill people), and Obie will (I'm smiling) get the blame if American troops get caught in a new round of moslem hell before they are able to get out.
