1. It depends on how it goes
I'll bet if the attacks turn out generally succusful (from a US perspective) he'll have been involved in suggesting it. On the other hands if the attacks are a costly failure than it will turn out to have been Bremers fault.

4. It depends on what methods were approved
For example, firing a rocket from a safe distance into a building with indiscriminate results- or physically raiding the building with troops.
Either way I think Bush is in pretty hot water. He's supposed to be religious and respectful of others. I think he's killed that image once and for all.
Our PR around the world is at an all time low now.

7. Yeah but
1. The US doesn't care about the court of world opinion.

2. What happens in Fallujah would have to be pretty bad before it would overshadow the images from last week.

3. Everybody who tells the story of what's happening in Fallujah will have their own ax to grind, so it will be difficult to get concrete information.

4. Even if Fallujah turns out to be damaging, and the American people buy that it's damaging and want to see someone take responsibility, President Bush still has the option of turning to Bremer and saying, "So why did you do this obviously wrongheaded action all on your own, Bremer?"

5. From the fundie perspective, there should be no difference
between this and Waco. But I expect way too much in the way of thinking from them.

6. You may be wrong
Didn't Roberston call Muslim a gutter religion? Its not like they hit a church or anything.
