W is willing to compromise, but only to advance his goals.

W is exploring Iraq compromise with Congress because his political scheming is backfiring and he won't get any of what he desires if he doesn't grovel for it. He's starting his dance of shame now. In Iraq, Maliki, the Shiite stooge of the US is being blamed by the Sunnis as the one behind the killings of the Sunni tribal chiefs who were fighting al-queda. In the US GOP Senators are openly defiant to him regarding his Iraqi theatre of GWOT. When you fail in one area it sometimes becomes a pattern you can't escape. That is what is happening to big bro 43!

The article "White House explores Iraq policy compromise" at

states "The Los Angeles Times cited unnamed officials as saying President George W. Bush had authorised an internal policy review to find a plan that could satisfy opponents without sacrificing his top goals.  Some senior administration officials - including Defence Secretary Robert Gates and UN ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad - had been quietly talking with legislators about how to adjust policy in the months ahead, the paper said.

Among other ideas, they had discussed whether the US should advocate a sharply decentralised Iraq, a notion that had seen a resurgence on Capitol Hill. "

Back in Oct. 16 2006 big bro 43 was adamantly against a decentralized Iraq as "President George W. Bush said he would reject any recommendation to partition Iraq along ethnic and sectarian lines, and he reaffirmed his confidence in Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's ability to unify the country. Bush, in an interview on the Fox News Channel, said Maliki agrees that creating semi-autonomous states for Kurds and Shiite and Sunni Muslims would worsen divisions in Iraq, which has been suffering a surge of sectarian violence. The president also said the U.S. wouldn't impose any deadlines on Maliki. ''I don't think that's the right way to go,'' Bush said on Fox. Setting up ''three autonomous regions will create a situation where'' more fighting would occur.

W likes talking on FOX because they give him the questions in advance of the interview and allows Rove to whisper the answers into the pile of excrement's ears.

That was then when W had political capital. Now he's inching closer to "Tricky Dick" lows of polls and power and "Some top officials, including Mr Gates, have appeared less enthusiastic about the current "surge" of 30,000 troops. And in recent weeks, they have begun considering a partial drawdown as early as the first quarter of next year.

That idea of what proponents of decentralisation call a "federal system of government" was favoured by an unusually broad bipartisan group of senators, and the administration's stance might be easing, the paper said."

This is the GOP way. Get surrogates to broach the subject.  See how the public reacts.  Rove will poll it and when it seems that the populace is just completely overwhelmed with apathy or they have become so callous that they've lost the disgust that compassionate people would possess, then W will speak some words that won't sound like a flip-flop, but will be.

The article "Blast could derail a key Iraqi alliance" at,1,6338928.story?coll=laheadlines-world&ctrack=6&cset=true

states "Five sheiks and a political official supporting the arming of Sunni Arab tribes to fight against Al Qaeda in Iraq were among 12 people killed Monday in a massive bomb blast at a heavily guarded Baghdad hotel.

The early afternoon attack risked derailing an emerging alliance between Sunni Muslim tribal leaders in long-restive Al Anbar province and the country's Shiite Muslim majority the day after a key round of negotiations to formalize their relationship with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki's government."

Who is being blamed? Knowing how these things go there will be some fall-guy involved as an informant or provocateur. It was as "Among those touring the blast site later was Shiite politician Ahmad Chalabi, now a secular advisor to the prime minister.

Amid the broken glass and blood congealed on the floor, Chalabi worried about the effect of the killings on the Sunni tribes that had reached out to the government.

"This is a message from the terrorists to all the leaders in Al Anbar, Abu Ghraib [a town near Baghdad] and Diyala [province, northeast of the capital] who want to come to terms with the situation and negotiate with the government; they are vulnerable and in easy reach even when they are in one of the most secure areas in Baghdad," Chalabi said.
