Have your say! "Free Speech" or Muslim bashing? Do you support Iraq troop withdrawal? Iran invasion?

    It's all good.

    Would-be politicians take note. This is how to frame and answer:

    Question: “Mr. President, as you know, the casualties of Iraq is again high today – 50 more people dying. Do you think that insurgence is getting harder now to defeat militarily? Thank you.”

    President Bush: “No, I don’t think so. I think they’re being defeated. And that’s why they continue to fight.” [Bush, 5/23/05]

    But wait. If they're are being defeated, the number of attacks will necessarily decrease towards the end. But when the number of attacks is low because of their defeat, the resistance will therefore be strong again, according to Bush's logic. I feel dizzy.
