W has made the US weaker due to his crimes.

W's international policy has made the US weaker, hated by Islamic and non-Islamic countries, and has virtually broken our military. The bloated military budget has shot up our deficits and our economy is in tatters, except of course for W's "Pioneer" and "Ranger" political contributors in the top 1%.

In W's recent speeches he was originally going to slowly descend into agreeing with the pleas of the nation to start a phased re-deployment of our troops from Iraq, but someone let him say words that weren't written by Rove as the always hypocritical-or is it blatantly lying W, has again linked 9-11 to Iraq. In W's twisted psyche, once you get the crowd riled up with the 9-11 propaganda, you don't have to flip-flop on Iraq. Staying the course is the GOP way, especially when that course gives Cheney's Halliburton all the money that the Feckless, Reckless, Dick_____ one needs.

The article "White House Gives Iraq Mixed Marks in Report
shows how even people who W put in place, can't agree with W's lies as "Meanwhile, in testimony before the House Armed Services Committee, senior intelligence officials said there has been no meaningful positive change in Iraq since January, when a starkly pessimistic National Intelligence Estimate warned that even if security improved, violent sectarian divisions threatened to destroy the government.

Thomas Fingar, the deputy director of national intelligence and chief of the National Intelligence Council, which wrote the January estimate, said that assessment did not change. While the government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has made "halting efforts to bridge the divisions and restore commitment to a unified country . . . it has made limited progress on key legislation," such as the oil revenue law and a range of power-sharing measures.

"Communal violence and scant common ground between Shias, Sunnis and Kurds continues to polarize politics," Fingar said yesterday. Even the majority-Shiite bloc that Maliki heads, he said, "does not present a unified front" and has continued to deteriorate in recent months. Meanwhile, the provision of essential services seen as crucial in building support for the government, including electricity and oil production, remains below prewar levels, he said. Some have declined over the past six months."

So, any lies W makes about Iraq should be ignored. The fact that W has helped Al-Qaida, by allowing them freedom in Pakistan, should be noted. A new threat assessment, titled "Al-Qaida Better Positioned to Strike the West," says al-Qaida's ability to operate in certain areas of Pakistan, which is a result of the now infamous deal between the government and tribal leaders last year, has given it the facility to plan attacks around the world. The intelligence report says that intelligence officials emphasized that, despite the resurgence of al-Qaida, there's no specific threat against the United States.

The July 9, 2007 article "Bush Tries Moving the Goalposts"
states "When President Bush announced in January that he was sending more troops to Iraq, he declared that the Iraqis needed to exploit the surge by following through on several promises.

"America will hold the Iraqi government to the benchmarks it has announced," Bush said.

What would happen if the Iraqis failed? Aides at the time insisted that there would be consequences, without saying what or when. The president's own warning was hardly ominous: "If the Iraqi government does not follow through on its promises, it will lose the support of the American people," he said-long after that had already happened.

But at least the new policy held out some vague hope for accountability.

Congress has since made the benchmarks more concrete, setting some deadlines if not for achieving the goals then at least for some progress reports from the president."

Big bro 43 has his surrogates begging GOP goons to stay the course as "Last week, Mr. Bush's national security adviser, Stephen J. Hadley, called in from a brief vacation to join intense discussions in sessions that included Karl Rove, Mr. Bush's longtime strategist, and Joshua B. Bolten, the White House chief of staff. . . .

"The views of many of the participants in that discussion were unclear, and the officials interviewed could not provide any insight into what Vice President Dick Cheney had been telling President Bush.

"They described Mr. Hadley as deeply concerned that the loss of Republicans could accelerate this week, a fear shared by Mr. Rove. But they also said that Mr. Rove had warned that if Mr. Bush went too far in announcing a redeployment, the result could include a further cascade of defections-and the passage of legislation that would force a withdrawal by a specific date, a step Mr. Bush has always said he would oppose."

Who is the villain-Rove the puppeteer, or his willing stooge W?

The Nazi propaganda machine has nothing on Herr Karl. How many times do we have to say that Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11. A few years ago Cheney said that lie and the next day W said the Iraq Study Group stated unequivocally that Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11, but W is down in the polls and he wants to scare the apathetic US red staters, so, as the July 11, 2007 article, "Bush again links Iraq war to Al Qaeda
quotes the stooge saying "The same people that attacked us on September the 11th is a crowd that is now bombing people" in Iraq, Bush said. "The killers who came to America have said, with clarity, we want you out of Iraq so we can have a safe haven from which to attack again."
