What will our grandchildren read in their history books about Iraq?
How do you see this war being described 50 years from now?

1. "Allah be praised"

"It was with that war that we finally gained enough recruits to defeat the great Satan, kill their leaders, and convert Ann Coulter to Islam!

"Truly Allah blessed us by giving us George W. Bush!

"Truly Allah loves his even his pale converts in the Islamic Republics of North America!"

3. Reading about Iraq
The way it's looking, they may be there to see it in person.

That's what I tell the flag-waving zombies who think Bush* is doing such a great job. I ask them what they think if THEIR kids were going to die for oil. Sometimes, they actually stop and pause.

5. Hopefully: Pinko commie Kerry pulled troops out despite victory being near

Otherwise they will probably see it for themselves. Remembering how some historians portray Vietnam, probably they'll get a blast from both the crazy 'we coulda won it!' and the 'we gave and took too many lives for no reason'.
