Portland Says No to Escalation

I’m in Memphis at the National Conference for Media Reform, or you would’ve seen me on the streets in Portland (or maybe Hillsdale or Corbett) protesting this ridiculous Iraq escalation strategy Thursday evening.

I’ve read the text of the President’s remarks, and I think it’s fascinating how he is talking about “mistakes” instead of acknowledging that invasion is a failed strategy to create democracy. As a matter of fact, I think we should only refer to the invasion as “the failed invasion of Iraq.” Better do it it now… can we really afford, in terms of lives or money, to wait for six months and then talk about the “failed military escalation in Iraq?”
