Our troops are now caught between warring factions as this shattered country is locked in a death struggle between religious sects. The four permanent bases we are building there may be all the territory we really wanted to begin with, but you have to ask yourself why our brain trust in the White House left so many of our young people to ride around in a civil war?
Time for another one of those speeches about the hard work of democracy, followed by another vacation back in Crawford. By the way, in case you don’t think the President realizes what he’s done here, relax, he knows all too well about the pain of an injury. Here's what he told some amputation patients earlier this year: "As you can possibly see, I have an injury myself — not here at the hospital, but in combat with a cedar. I eventually won. The cedar gave me a little scratch. As a matter of fact, the Colonel asked if I needed first aid when she first saw me. I was able to avoid any major surgical operations here, but thanks for your compassion, Colonel." —George W. Bush, after visiting with wounded veterans from the Amputee Care Center of Brooke Army Medical Center, San Antonio, Texas, Jan. 1, 2006
