Bush: "We're helping this young democracy succeed. "

http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2006/10/2006101...

Press Conference by the President
The Rose Garden

<snip>

Attacks and casualties have also increased recently because our forces are confronting the enemy in Baghdad and in other parts of Iraq. The past weekend, U.S. and Iraqi forces engaged militias -- or members of an illegal militia -- during a mission to capture a high-value target. The reason I bring this up is that we're on the move. We're taking action. We're helping this young democracy succeed.

1. Question: How can we be 'freeing' the people of Iraq if they're the
enemy we're confronting in Baghdad? Who else is in these 'illegal militias? Swiss? Argentines?

5. Yeah, it's going just fine. Tell us again how great your plan is.
You stupid warmongering puppet. Tell it to the families of the folks whose lives you've ruined.

6. Raisinbrain absolutely knows the truth about Iraq.
I have no doubt of that, since Bush Crime Family attorney James Baker is now involved. Raisinbrain is simply in over his head and Baker has yet again been called in to clean up after him.
