Dying For Bush’s Mistakes
How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?” Lt. John Kerry, the Winter Soldiers testimony.

"Iraq is in serious danger of coming apart because of lack of planning, underestimating the task and buying into a flawed strategy, the longer we stubbornly resist admitting the mistakes and not altering our approach, the harder it will be to pull this chestnut out of the fire." Gen. Anthony Zinni.

“The invasion of Iraq I believe will turn out to be the greatest strategic disaster in U.S. history,” Lt. Gen William Odom.

“The Iraq invasion will be seen as one of the greatest blunders that American Presidents have ever made,” Jimmy Carter.

"There will be no military victory or military solution for Iraq." Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE).

“The situation in Iraq is grave and deteriorating.” Summary, Iraq Study Group.

“The Iraq Group confirmed that a military solution is not forthcoming no matter how long we stay,’’ Rep. Gwen Moore.

“I thought we would succeed quicker than we did, and I am disappointed by the pace of success.” George W. Bush, in response to the Iraq Study Group report.

1. Bush made no mistake...and the mission is accomplished...
We are in Iraq for the next thirty years. There may be a "draw down of troops" to make it look as if we are leaving but there are those permanent bases that will be there for years and years.

2. Exactly.
B*sh dances to the tune of international Big Oil and the MIC, he doesn't consider himself accountable to the American people.

Just look at the fact that Halliburton has re-located to Dubai, that indicates how much growth the oil monarchies are expecting.

4. This man's stupidity knows no end!
Aside from the blatantly obvious refusal to defer to reality, “I thought we would succeed quicker..."

"more quickly" or "faster" douche bag "president"
