Here we go again!

After seven months—from September, 2007 to April, 2008—the joint pitch of General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker to Congress is that we stay put in Iraq.  Again, success is around the corner.  These Bush charges touched upon all the controversial bases in their assessments. What was fudged over, not acknowledged, or left out was even more revealing, as usual. All the Bush forces live in their own time warped bubble, seeing only what they want to.  The “at whim,” bushed policies of intervention and occupation around the world must cease.

 

To save treasure, face, and finally make the necessary investments here at home for our own people, the American charge for continued presence on bases around the world must be reduced.  We must start the orderly process of bringing our troops home now. It is time for other nations to take responsibility for their own futures and to use their own resources to defend and protect themselves. Enough with the lies, obfuscating, double talk, buzz words, and platitudes!  They do not serve us well in the 21st century.

 

Time does not stand still, but our days are numbered. March’s surge in violence and deaths was conveniently left out by the opposition. While our civil servants conduct their war of words, our troops die needlessly. The voices of the people must be heard. This president must be held accountable for his high crimes and misdemeanors.  America’s true patriotism must be restored.
