Bush: Leaving Iraq Would Be a Bad Move

I hate it admit it but this time the Shrub has it right. We have to stay.

Too bad he did take more time to plan this MISADVENTURE better at the start. Maybe he should have listened to Colin Powell who warned him that this was folly at the outset. Maybe he should have listened to Brent Scowcroft. Either way this war has ruined Iraq and all that Colin Powell warned Bush that would happen has. We now find Iraq with a domestic and foreign insurgency that seeks to kill as many Americans as possible and to push the country into civil war, our forces caught in a quagmire and the American death toll mounting. With our military stretched to the brink, as it is Bush sees no need for more troops in either Iraq or Afghanistan.

Brent Scowcroft, national security adviser to President George HW Bush warned Chimpus Maximus that going into Iraq would be a mistake and also stated “.. the central point is that any campaign against Iraq, whatever the strategy, cost and risks, is certain to divert us for some indefinite period from our war on terrorism” and that has also proved to be true. As Bin Laden is still on the loose, Al Qaeda has grown in strength and for the most part, outside of Kabul, Afghanistan is a lawless Narco Republic ruled by warlords. Also, U.S. State Dept. studies have shown that under Bush’s cowboy like foreign policy Terrorism has increased exponentially.

As Iraq edges closer to civil war the Iraqi Government is still attempting to come up with a constitution that everyone can agree on. Today a leading Senior Shia leader suggested that there be an autonomous Shia state. The Kurds for the most part already are free and autonomous as a people in the north. The Sunnis, however, know that if this happens that they will be screwed out of any oil revenue and would be under the heel of the majority Shia so they want no part of it. It would appear that forcing a democracy on a region that has known nothing but tyrannical subjugation for millennia is proving harder than Bush and his Neocon handlers anticipated. If Iraq is allowed to fall into civil war the entire Middle East could be destabilized.

The Iranians, another large Shia runned state right next door, are thumbing their noses at the West as they restart their nuclear program. It’s not too hard to foresee a large part of Iraq siding with the Iranians if the whole of Iraq fell into anarchy. If this happened it would thus form an “Islamic Super State” with eventual nuclear capability. With Israel, who has nuclear capability, on the same block feeling threatened how long will it be before they jump into the fray?

As the anti war movement gains momentum and more and more of the American people turn against Bush and his war, Bush will feel the tremendous pressure to do something. But What? The people have grown tired of his “Aw Shucks folksy” same old empty lines and the stay the course RAP .The people want action. The people want action, but with no plan, Bush is in a helluva fix and this time around his Daddy and his connections can’t bail him out of this one.
With Iraq near civil war, the American death toll rising and dissention against the war at a state of almost Critical Mass the country will truly be torn apart by what the lies and half-truths of this “Great Uniter” and his incompetent administration have wrought.

So as my illiterate and uninformed Red State friends would say “it ain’t a pretty picture”. And that is the cue to all the supporters of this GODLY SIMPLETON to come up with an answer, because it is readily apparent that your Fearless leader doesn’t have one.

Now that's what we come to blogs to see - good postings!

I don't know if I can answer your question without a long drawn out and boring post. I blame Hussein for not following the post-Desert Storm UN edicts. The burden of proof was on him to prove that he wasn't developing WMDs, it wasn't on the UN to prove he did. But
instead of providing documentation, verification and cooperation, he flauted the requirements for almost a decade. After 9/11, we realized we had to be proactive - rather than reactive - to Middle East madmen. And when even an airplane can be a weapon of mass destruction . . . well, there isn't much room for error. I blame the UN - a group made-up largly of corrupt dictators for not possessing the moral standing to go after one of their one (how could they, really?)

As for polls, I don't put much credence in the opinions of people obsessed with runaway brides and missing blondes. The media has about as much credibility in judging the current military situation as Chicken Little.

I could go on and on, but what would be the point?

I'll be looking for your response to my answer, but after that I'll be going away for a while.

Me and some of my buds from the Karl Rove Fan Club are gonna load up in my daddy's Hummer and take a road trip down to Crawford. We're staging a counter protest to Cindy Sheehan. What a disgrace that woman is! Her son was a grown man who gave "the last full measure of devotion" to his country and she is making a mockery of his decision to serve his country. She's an embarassment to all military wives and mothers. Could you imagine a Gold Star mother during WWII behaving that way?

Anyway, I've gotta get away from the liberal media for a while (that includes, as much as you would deny it, this site). We'll keep the radio tuned to Rush and Hannity the whole way down . . . sweet!
