American President George W. Bush now insists that 'patience' is the key to success in Iraq.
According to Bush, "If America waits long enough, then the enemy might get bored, and boredom will lead to victory!"
Of course the current war, forgetting the other Iraq wars in recent times, is now entering it's fifth year. It has claimed 3,200 American soldiers and, as far as the people America are there to protect, estimates differ wildly between 60,000 and 600,000 Iraqi Civilian lives.
This has prompted some people to ask just how long 'patience' will be the strategy.
Bush was uncharacteristically quick to answer this.
"The 'patience' strategy will be in effect until the new president comes in. Then it's someone else's problem. Be patient... I'll be gone soon."
Iraqi civilians are patiently dying.
