Which is to say that George Bush knowingly recognizes the Iraq war is his legacy. In spite of his demonstrated incompetence in a range of domestic issues --Social security, environmental protection, the Medicare drug prescription drug program and the Hurricane Katrina disaster--- it is the Iraq war on which George W. Bush will die historically. And historical death seems certain. Conclusion: The worst president in the history of the United States of America.
"One can't doubt that the American objective in Iraq has failed .... Yes, but within their own counsels, different plans have to be made. And the kernel here is the acknowledgment of defeat. "
But with his life and legacy on the line, will George Bush admit defeat In Iraq? The answer is never. He, and his despicable culprit in crimes against humanity, Dick Cheney, have invested too much of themselves in this horrific disaster to back down now. For them there is no turning back. It 's human nature.
Regrettably, it 's up to Congress to take first action --that pathetic and weakling body that has caved in to every Bush wish. But failing Congressional action, which we all expect, the real power lies in the American people, whose sense of decency, justice and human dignity can in the end triumph over this horrific Bush administration travesty.
These are very trying tines. May God bless us all.
