Bush Has Explaining To Do

-- by Dave Johnson

Iraqi Leaders Call for Pullout Timetable,

Leaders of Iraq's sharply divided Shiites, Kurds and Sunnis called Monday for a timetable for the withdrawal of U.S.-led forces in the country and said Iraq's opposition had a ``legitimate right'' of resistance.
And what about those attacking American forces?
In Egypt, the final communique's attempt to define terrorism omitted any reference to attacks against U.S. or Iraqi forces. Delegates from across the political and religious spectrum said the omission was intentional. They spoke anonymously, saying they feared retribution.
Bush invaded Iraq. He installed a constuitution that makes Iraq an Islamic state. The leaders of Iraq have signed a military cooperation agreement and a friendship treaty with Iran.

Bush needs to explain why we are in Iraq and needs to explain his strategy for success. He needs to explain how setting Iran up as the superpower of the Middle East was in our interests, and wht he is going to do about it.

Unfortunately, Rove will be heeding the call for bringing the troops home, orchestrated with perfect timing and (GOP) "victory" parades to coincide with the mid-term elections in 2006.

Better hope Scanlon sings loud and long......

Dave is in a fantasyland of meme creation. The US is going to rise up as one and unite behind Dave's framing to MAKE BUSH ACCOUNTABLE. And then we all go to Disneyland.

The comment above will much more closely resemble what actually happens. And don't forget why -- because democrat sharpies will decide to back a clever little political tactic rather than a moral position, AS USUAL. Corrupt, cowardly, incompetent.
