The Improbable Dream

So I have noticed something about all the Iraq coverage I have seen and read.

In short, the conclusions almost every single expert seems to arrive at, is that, no matter what we do, We're Boned

Most of them at least talk about a time when things could have gone better. But I really have yet to find one yet, who is anything short of glum or dour.

Which seems strange, since these people are paid to speculate, and not a single one of them can come pull a single plausibly positive chain of events out their arse?

However, I have also come across these other articles...

Cat Raises Rottweiler

NASA Plans Moon Base

Rottweiler raises Sheep

Lab accident yields possible cancer hope

Plan to stop global warming with algae

Now, it seems strange to me, that all the above things, were reported in a light, which makes them seem downright likely.

There seems to be only one reasonable conclusion from this data.

The war in Irag is not one against terror. It is a war on probability.

Careful planning has clearly gone into making Iraq an absolute "nexus" of Impossibility.

A massive project, which has, apparently, required gathering up all the impossibility and futility in the world and concentrating it in a single place. resulting in massive shortfalls elsewhere, whose positive effects can be seen above.

Although, don't expect the party to last too long, it is only a matter of time before some corporation begins manipulating this low supply of malaise on the commodity market of sorrows, and begins charging grandmothers dollars on the minute as they wait in quiet desperation for their children to call them.

Ha! Very nice.

I propose the following change:

"... have Dick work out exactly how improbable it is, and then give that amount of money to Halliburton in a *really* lucrative no bid contract." =)
