The Dr. Strangelove connection:

Everybody's talking about the op-ed in the Washington Post by Fred Kagan and retired general Jack Keane that calls for a "surge" of troops in Iraq that would last about two years. Most people would call that an escalation, but no matter. What concerns us is that this Jack Keane guy might not be who he claims to be. Is he really "Jack Keane", or is he General Jack D. Ripper come to life?

Sure looks like it.

Above all, remember this:
When you "surge", be careful not to spill your precious bodily fluids!


I just saw this movie recently, and you have got this one right. A very nice catch!

Surge, is of course a euphemism. Others are spurt, spasm, climax, but as Kagen says, any surge must be big and long.

Jeez, Louise! That goes beyond creepy. Not surprising, you understand, just beyond creepy...
