This is a report from NOVEMBER 1. I'm posting it now to illustrate the "deep depth" of committment Bush actually has for the US troops: :blob6:

BUSH ABANDONS AN AMERICAN SOLDIER

Quote:
While the media is obsessed parsing the ad libs of someone on no ballot this fall, something truly ominous has just happened in Iraq. The commander-in-chief has abandoned an American soldier to the tender mercies of a Shiite militia. Yes, there are nuances here, and the NYT fleshes out the story today. But the essential fact is clear.

In a showdown for control of Baghdad, the Iraqi prime minister took orders from Moqtada al-Sadr, and instructed the U.S. military to withdraw from Sadr City. The American forces were trying both to stabilize the city but also to find a missing American serviceman. He is still missing


Quote:
The U.S. military does not have a tradition of abandoning its own soldiers to foreign militias, or of taking orders from foreign governments. No commander-in-chief who actually walks the walk, rather than swaggering the swagger, would acquiesce to such a thing.

He has abandoned the United States and it's people so why not add the military to it also. One day someone will wake up and say "WTF"

WTF?

but what do you expect from the same person that actually INVITED the insurgents to attack our forces... and I wonder if he's satisfied with their response to that challenge...

:evil:
