True meglomania

"There are some who, uh, feel like that, you know, the conditions are such that they can attack us there. My answer is: Bring 'em on. We got the force necessary to deal with the security situation. “ - George W. Bush, July 2, 2003.

Bush Baby, can you just stop for a moment to realize that the U.S. will never be observed as an objective and honest party in Iraq. Is it impossible for you to learn from history? This is not the first time that a Western nation has attempted to install a government under the guise of imperialism. History shows us that the British were there for more than two decades and they had to eventually cut and run – just as we will.

We (US government) claimed we would bring an American democracy to the people of Iraq. We claimed such even though we knew the people of Iraq did not want or ask for an American style government. Now we see that it may take more than we have at our mental prowess to deal with the Iraq quandary. It is obvious that the current administration does not have any conception of solving this problem. I mean, how does sending an additional 21,5000 troops to Baghdad deal with the rot issue at have and better yet, how did the President come up with such a number as being enough to do the job when Former General Powell suggested you needed at least 500,000 to do the job correctly?

We cannot count on the ruling government we have established there to do the job. In all actuality, Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki is no different from Saddam Hussein; after all, we built up Saddam like we have posted up Al-Maliki. The only difference is that the plan that he offers his people in the form of a democratically centralized government is not the plan of his nor the Iraqi people, but rather a US developed imitative. The current administration seems to miss the big picture. Money and troops will not lead us to a solution or a reduction of animosity towards the west, in particular the United States. We can see this from what we have failed to do in Afghanistan since we invaded the country in 2001(The White House will request an additional $8 billion from Congress for the war in Afghanistan).

Through al of this, we just get more dead folks. So far, 53 US troops have been killed in Iraq this month, many of which are in central Baghdad. Nothing is improving in Iraq and just this morning, a bomb killed 15 people and wounded 55 others in Baghdad's Friday morning pet market. Yesterday, Bomb killed at least 34 people in Baghdad and all of this while US military is heavily engaged with insurgents.

President Bush will be remembered for several things in the history books: 1) pre-emptive military action, 2) his US-led invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 and 3) Iraq in March 2003 and maybe even a military conflict with Iran before the end of the year. So do not be so quick to think these problems will go away with the addition of 21,000 more troops and a constitution in Iraq because we will be talking about and seeing this war and the others on television for at least the next decade, if not even more.

You forgot #4 - the emergency response failure of the government during Hurricane Katrina. Damn I miss Clinton and his happy, sexually-satisfied self.

and the injustice of the voting system for African Americans in order to get him into office.

I am curious as to how a new President will clean up the Iraqi mess, with elections right around the corner, and Bush set for retirement safe and secure to his mega-billionaire compound.

I think one of the reasons that we will fail at establishing a democratic, U.S.-like government in Iraq is that our government was founded on CHRISTIAN principles. We have somewhat evolved into a society that allows people certain freedoms regardless of race or religion, but that took some 200+ years and we're still working on it. I don't think the PEOPLE of Iraq want this type of government. If the people don't back it, it's not gonna work! Bush used a word during his State of the Union address that made me tremble--assimilation. We see how well that worked with Native Americans, huh?
