The Spoils of War

By Bill Maher

Today in Iraq, bombs targeting civilians are going off left and right. It's almost like we never left. And thank God we did. 

Here's what I’m wondering: if you talk to the people who know about the region and about the war, including many American military commanders, they'd have no problem agreeing with this statement: "We fought a war against Iraq, and Iran won." But, how many people in America do you think would agree with that statement? And how many do you think would agree with the statement, "We fought a war against Iraq and America came out on top. Because of the surge, baby!"

And maybe that's fine. Because America likes a W. Maybe we should just let them continue to imagine they got one.
