Bush says troops will stay till task accomplished
BAGHDAD (Reuters) -President Bush said on Tuesday the hand of al Qaeda lay behind sectarian violence racking Iraq, and he would not pull troops out "before the mission is complete."That's right - it's all al Qaeda's fault, everything is al Qaeda's fault.
Bush, speaking in the Baltic republics before a NATO summit, deflected talk of "civil war" -- a description which could increase pressure on him to withdraw U.S. forces.
"There is one thing I'm not going to do. I am not going to pull our troops off the battlefield before the mission is complete," he said in a speech at the University of Latvia.
Meanwhile Dick Cheney's creative intelligence unit is accusing Iran and Hezbollah of helping Moktada al-Sadr's Mahdi Army. Now this may or may not be the case but let's be honest, these are the same folks who told us Iraq was overflowing with WMD. There is every reason to believe that Iran may be just as afraid of an Iraq controlled by al-Sadr as the Americans.
The entire administration is of course trying to blame everyone but themselves for the debacle known as Iraq. They have consistently created their own facts and ignored the real ones. There was a good reason the administration of Bush 41 didn't march to Bahgdad during the first gulf war. They knew that the sudden removal of Saddam Hussein would result in the continuation of a 1,400 year old battle between the Shia and the Sunni and destabilize the entire middle east. While Bush 43 claims that Iraq in the front line of the war on terror. In reality he has proved that the administration of Bush 41 was right.
The administration of George W. Bush is now irrelevant on the world stage and in Iraq. As we saw above the American people now realize it and with President Jalal Talabani's trip to Iran it would appear that the Iraqis realize it too.
