Our soldiers are weary and want to come home. Having sacrificed so much, most ground troops report little achievement in the Bush Administrations Iraq planor lack thereof. The Iraqi people say they were better off under Saddam. Yes, they feared him, but now theyre even afraid of their neighbors. Under the leadership of Saddam Hussein, the women had rights which are no longer available to them. The only measurable progress in Iraq is shown in the war profiteers increased wealth.
So many of us could repeat what the president has said about Saddam, substituting Bushs name for Husseins. George is a tyrant who used violence to exacerbate sectarian divisions to keep himself in power.
Like a dog in heat, Bush pursued the occupation of Iraq, a catastrophic endeavor of greed and hubris. Did Karl Rove tell him that Americans usually return an incumbent to office during a war? Those opposed to Operation Iraqi Freedom were outnumbered by people who were intimidated by the Bush teams repeat of: 9/11, 9/11, be afraid, vote for a Democrat and well have another attack, and were fighting them over there so we dont have to fight them over here. We do know with certainty that Rove successfully quashed reports before the 2004 election that Bush rushed to war with faulty intelligence despite the advice of experts who told the president that Iraq posed no threat to the US.
Meanwhile, George Bush, who is passing the war baton to the next president in this relay race to deliver The Project for the New American Century, has been making the rounds to promote his disaster in the Middle East. Hes talking 9/11, terrorists, and Iraq in the same sentence, followed by photo-op jokes that really arent funny. Instead, they are excruciatingly inappropriate. The crawler tells us of more troop deaths while the hunks and hunkettes who are supposed to be reporting the news but fail us so miserably are chuckling about Georges latest gig (pre-Cancun) when he referenced his body in a Speedo. Isnt Bush a laugh riot?
What does it matter that our president cant debate his way out of a wet paper bag when he can joke a path to its exit? Im sure Mommy Dearest who is just as inappropriate as her son is laughing. Oh, those Bush genes. They must be loaded with threads of absolutely hilarious DNA.
