5 painful years

Five years of Iraq lies:" How President Bush and his advisors have spent each year of the war peddling mendacious tales about a mission accomplished. I posit that each year of the war has been characterized by a central lie by the Bush propaganda machine.
Year 1: "There is no guerrilla war."
Year 2: "Iraq is a model democracy."

Year 3: "Zarqawi is causing all the trouble."

Year 4: "There is no Civil War."

Year 5: "Everything is calm now."

I also suggest that John McCain is pushing for:
Year 6: "Total victory is around the corner."
...continuing at Juan Cole and Salon
