1. The text is not available yet,
but I'll check back to see if it is. I'm definitely curious to see what Mr. Ram has to say about "overstaying our welcome".

Whether we stay on in Iraq depends on 2 things:

1) Financing. We can't fight forever! This war is costing us $4.2 billion per month. Or $50 billion per year. Add to that our budget deficit which is in the stratosphere, not counting our little adventure in Iraq. I'd say the money will run out before the warmongers do.

2) The public's willingness to trust Bush a little longer. I'd say that trust is wearing a little thin. Besides, he might have the same fate as Mr. Aznar of Spain.

2. When I was a little kid I was learning nursery rhymes involving Iraq...
this is going to go on a LONG time.

This is Bush's achilles heel. Him trying to sell the war on lies.

Kerry needs to produce a tape of all the administration officials talking about how Iraq will be a cakewalk.
