Thousands dead in victory

The Onion got it spot on this time. The heading and very first sentence tells the whole story, from how we're not winning a thing, to the Bush admin's Orwellian gift for perverting language. Enjoy:

Thousands More Dead In Continuing Iraq Victory
America marks three and a half years of winning in Iraq,
and nearly 3,000 victory deaths

Statistics released by the Department Of Defense estimated that 2,937 U.S. troops and over 100,000 Iraqi civilians have died in the ongoing American military victory in Iraq.
