Absurdities from Bush's Iraq speech today
On how the
"Operation Iraqi Freedom was a remarkable display of military effectiveness."
The weapons argument, yet again. Bush still has not learned his lesson in that regard:
"Because we acted, Saddam's regime is no longer invading its neighbors orattacking them with chemical weapons and ballistic missiles."
On the surge's impact on the war against al Qaeda:
"The surge has done more than turn the situation in Iraq around -- it hasopened the door to a major strategic victory in the broader war on terror."
Actually, last time I checked, Obama bin Laden is still free. His terrorist organization was the one that attacked us on 9/11. They were not as involved in Iraq as they are today as a result of this war.
Once again, Bush lumped Osama bin Laden in with the mission in Iraq:
"When Iraqi andAmerican forces finish the job, the effects will reverberate far beyondIraq's borders. Osama bin Laden once said: "When people see a stronghorse and a weak horse, by nature they will like the strong horse." Bydefeating al Qaeda in Iraq, we will show the world that al Qaeda is theweak horse. (Applause.) We will show that men and women who love libertycan defeat the terrorists. And we will show that the future of the MiddleEast does not belong to terror -- the future of the Middle East belongs tofreedom."
Enough is enough. Just nine months and the Bush/Cheney regime will be out of office. Don't celebrate too soon though. There always is the possibility of an attack on Iran.
