Learning from the Past

Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States:

President Bush: My fellow Americans, good evening. I want to announce tonight that I have sent American forces into Iran. We intend to use overwhelming force so that this conflict can be brought to a swift conclusion with a minimum of casualties. I'll let you know why we are doing this when the war is over. God bless America. Goodnight.

The ex post facto Bush style certainly makes it easier to turn what should be an explanation into what ultimately remains a justification. :)

It's a verbal editorial cartoon.

Actually, he'd probably give us a reason, then change it later.

But I'm curious: is this an argument against re-election, a projection based on some current moves or just a quick, easy shot.
