Gen. Abazaid says the Iraqi insurgents "haven't won a single engagement with American forces." Of course, neither did the Viet Cong, so I'm not quite sure what point he's trying to make there. [Battles, wars, strategy, tactics, who knows? Just a bunch of buzz words. Freedom is on the march. (Fuhrer, Italy is on the march!)]

I guess the troops can come home now right? They haven't lost a single battle after all...

According to the president when asked in the debatelast night when the troops would be coming home

"And so the best indication about when we can bring our troops home -- which I really want to do, but I don't want to do so for the sake of bringing them home [Parish the thought!]; I want to do so because we've achieved an objective -- is to see the Iraqis perform and to see the Iraqis step up and take responsibility.

I had the honor of visiting with Prime Minister Allawi. He's a strong, courageous leader. He believes in the freedom of the Iraqi people.

He doesn't want U.S. leadership, however, to send mixed signals, to not stand with the Iraqi people.

He believes, like I believe, that the Iraqis are ready to fight for their own freedom. {Looks like a lot of them already are, but against us.]

You know, we have to be right 100 percent of the time. [Like on 9-11 and WMD?] And the enemy only has to be right once to hurt us.

There's a lot of good people working hard.[Math is hard! Quoth Barbie.]

And so, the answer to your question is: When our general is on the ground and Ambassador Negroponte tells me that Iraq is ready to defend herself from these terrorists, that elections will have been held by then, that their stability and that they're on their way to, you know, a nation that's free; that's when. [So, Negroponte will decide. See, its out of Bush's hands!]

What about those WMD?

"My opponent looked at the same intelligence I looked at and declared in 2002 that Saddam Hussein was a grave threat."

You mean the intelligence Colin Powel said was bogus today?

"The only thing [the only thing?] where we got it wrong and where our presentation did not hold up was the actual stockpiles," Powell said. [Oh, those... And to palm tree] "We've seen nothing to suggest that he had actual stockpiles. That was not right."

He added, "As we've gone back and looked through the intelligence, there are indications that we had bad sourcing that we should have caught. For that I am disappointed and regret that that information was not correct." [Ooopse!]

Miscalculations? (Why didn't they stand up and let us shoot them?)

LEHRER: New question, Mr. President, two minutes. You have said there was a, quote, "miscalculation," of what the conditions would be in post-war Iraq. What was the miscalculation, and how did it happen?

BUSH: No, what I said was that, because we achieved such a rapid victory, more of the Saddam loyalists were around. I mean, we thought we'd whip more of them going in.

BUSH: But because Tommy Franks did such a great job in planning the operation, we moved rapidly, and a lot of the Baathists and Saddam loyalists laid down their arms and disappeared. I thought they would stay and fight, but they didn't. [ D'oh! ]

And now we're fighting them now. And it's hard work. I understand how hard it is. I get the casualty reports every day. I see on the TV screens [FOX?] how hard it is. But it's necessary work.

As Bush took us to war he relied upon facts that were presented not only by the U.N. but also the all knowing ( HA ) French, German, and Russian Governments. He had the most up to date information that was available to the world.
Not only that but what Bush did was to fulfill the agreement between the U.N., The United States, And Iraq at the end of the gulf war. The understanding was that for the end of hostilities Saddam and his government would allow unfettered inspections of his weapons development and deployment. Which he never did! All Saddam did from the end of the gulf war was to thumb his nose at the United States and the U.N.
Just because the French ( as always ) were too afraid to stand up to those that wish them harm. As well as taking Bribes for standing against the United States, ergo the charges that the French president is up on charges for. And skimming money from the food for oil program that was set up by the U.N. Does not mean that the United States had to live by the same standards of cowards.
I am tire of all you bleeding heart liberals taking and putting down the actions of the President just because he did something that Clinton was to wimpish to do. That was to bring the criminal Saddam to justice. After all Bush did more to get the U.N to back us than Clinton did in the Balkans or Haiti. At least Bush went to the U.N and got a resolution for the Action in Iraq. He freed millions of people. ( And the liberals say they stand for human rights HAHA only if it puts them more in power do they.)

As far as bringing our troops home. Leave it up to the democrats to suggest that we do it faster than would be prudent. After all if it gets Kerry a vote then they are all for it. If leaving the troops there till the job is completed would get them a vote then they would be all for that. To hell with what is right just as long as Kerry gets the White House and can put us under the socialist dictates of the U.N. then the democrats are all for it. After all the United States has been free for way to long. We were supposed to become the U.S.S.A. (United Socialist States of America ) with the advent of the welfare state and Social Security. Now lets all goose step to Stalin.
Why can't you all give this action at least the time you gave Clinton to mess up the Balkans?

Okay, nice example of breathless right winger who needs to stop drinking coffe, but I don't know what it has to do with my post.

By the way, before you start trashing the Germans and the French too much, you ought to consider they are providing thousands of troops to peace keeping and such in Afghanistan and Kosovo, so we don't have to.

Not that we could anyway, being all bogged down in Iraq the way we are.

Hopefully, the North Koreans don't go nuts and the Chinese and the Tiawanese don't decide to settle their differences with bullets because we have nothing left to spare.

So let's stay in Iraq for another 10 years, that's only potentially ten thousand more dead troops to prove a point, right?
