Howard Dean says Bush still has no plan for Iraq, using rhetoric of fear.
http://releases.usnewswire.com/GetRelease.asp?id=71033

"Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean today issued the following statement responding to the President's continued failure to provide a plan for success in Iraq:

"President Bush clearly has no plan for Iraq. His rhetoric of fear and his refusal to acknowledge the facts on the ground in Iraq are continuing to make America less safe," said Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean. "The American people understand that the United States should not be occupying a country in the midst of civil war and want real answers about our plan for success in Iraq. Instead, the president continues to offer a permanent commitment to a failed strategy, and a permanent commitment to distorting the tough and smart agenda for real security that Democrats are offering. The occupation in Iraq is costing American lives and hampering our ability to fight the real global war on terror against al Qaeda and the resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan, not to mention dealing with the threats posed by Iran and North Korea. Democrats believe we need a new direction in Iraq that is both tough and smart, and will fight the real war on terror here at home and around the globe."

1. We have nothing to fear but the enemies within: sadly their numbers are
astounding beyond belief.

2. erm....
no. I'd say we have some enemies abroad we are rightly afraid of. The question is how we can competently deal with them, as Howard says.

3. I like that he and others are referring to our "occupying" Iraq.
That is good, it may change the rhetoric some.
