It looks like a disaster no matter how you spin it, because of the death toll, not of our troops but of the citizens of the country in which the war is being fought. There is a lot to be desired. I can understand that. I can even understand why lily livers on Capitol Hill want to cut and run.
What I can’t understand is how theyÂ want to force us to do it when the results of running will be much more disastrous than staying and fighting. They offer no plan except retreat. They make of us a nation of cowards to further embolden the enemy. Why not just sign over the country now and avoid the bloodshed that will be our inheritance from their gutless actions? Oh, wait, that may be their plan and I just don’t know it, yet. It will be interesting to see what happens after Congress forces a precipitous withdrawal.
Â I just had a lovely thought. Bush still has almost two years left in office. If Congress forces a withdrawal by veto override, the president should take the leash off Israel. He does still determine foreign policyÂ and Israel certainly falls under that category.Â Now wouldn’t that throw a monkey wrench in the plans for the Democrats’ “New World Order?”
