I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Game Over

Jack Ohman
Yesterday Jazz suggested we should can the impeachment talk. I agree that it would be counter productive to impeach George W. Bush and or Dick Cheney for actions in the past. But what if they continue in their arrogant imperial ways?
Bush Reaction to Report Worries Father's Aides
Former White House advisers to George H.W. Bush are keenly disappointed and concerned about the current President Bush's initial reaction to the report by the Iraq Study Group.

They consider him rather dismissive of the group's conclusions, issued yesterday, which include the view that current Iraq policy is failing. The group recommends a variety of important changes, such as assigning U.S. troops to play more of an advisory and training role and less of a combat role. The ISG also recommends that the United States withdraw most of its combat brigades by early 2008 and that the administration increase diplomatic efforts, including starting talks with Iran and Syria and energetically working toward an Israeli-Palestinian solution.

Adding to the unease were President Bush's comments at his Thursday news conference with British Prime Minister Tony Blair, in which he avoided commenting on specifics in the ISG report.

"We have a classic case of circling the wagons," says a former adviser to Bush the elder. "If President Bush changes his policy in Iraq in a fundamental way, it undermines the whole premise of his presidency. I just don't believe he will ever do that."
Yes, nearly everyone now realizes when it come to Iraq the game is over. Everyone but the adolescent residing in the White House, his sycophant staff and a few of the ├╝ber wingnuts. So what do we do if Bush continues to simply ignore the wishes of congress and the American people? Perhaps there is only one way to make it clear to Mr Bush that the game is indeed over.
