Eric Margolis (Toronto Sun): Bush deserves to be impeached
"Worse than a crime, it was a blunder," was how the cynical Talleyrand famously described Napoleon's murder of the Duke d'Enghien.

The same may be said of President George Bush's attempts to murder the leader of a sovereign nation, Saddam Hussein, and his foolhardy eagerness to invade Iraq.

Thanks to Bush's blundering, nearly 50% of U.S. Army combat units are now stuck in a spreading guerrilla war in Iraq , costing $4 billion US monthly, that is becoming the biggest, most expensive, and bloodiest foreign mess since Vietnam. This when the U.S. is threatening military action against North Korea.

As the furor in Washington grows over Bush's admission of now-discredited claims about Iraqi uranium imports from Africa in his keynote state of the union address, administration officials are viciously blaming one another.

1. Couldn't Have Said It Better Myself

2. And Napoleon hated Talleyrand but could not do with out him
If Bush is what I think the front man in this mess they will cut him loose so as not to give up power. Let him ,Bush, bring in the money, but recall Gore had a lot less money and got the most votes. Fa????? Who knows about that mess. This mess will protect the power and all else will be left in the dust bins of history so to speek. Both parties always go for power and so be it.
