It's now official....

Iraq War longer than WWII in…

...and as Iraq is roughly the size of Poland or France derisory comparisons of Bush to Hitler may now commence.

It was long ago clear that it was ridiculous to compare him with FDR, with Churchill - goodness, it's a stretch even to cite him in the same breath as Neville Chamberlain.

But he doesn't measure up to the other side, either.

I'm actually trying to think of a comparable historical figure.

Oh, yeah. King Pyrrhus of Epirus.

UPDATE: a household member counts him as being more sucessful, on the whole, than Guy Fawks.
