Bush sees his shadow; six more weeks of death

George Bush, our fearless (?) leader, had originally planned to launch his new, new, new way forward for Iraq next week, right before Christmas, in an address to the nation, but now, it has been reported, the Decider has decided to wait till sometime in the new year.

That’s OK, really, take all the time you need. It’s not like anyone is going to die or anything in the meantime.

Yeah. . . .

It actually disgusts me—and I know I should be over it with this administration, but I can’t help it. Is there nothing that evokes a sense of urgency with this guy?

Apparently, he needs more time to hear from folks, you know, get some information about Iraq. . . . What has he been doing the last four years?!? The idea that this man doesn’t eat, drink, and breathe Iraq, the fact that it is not haunting his every waking and sleeping moment, points to nothing short of a diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder.

Or—and I am not dismissing the psychopathy—maybe Bush has decided, but needs to give all of us a little time to forget that a) the Iraq Study Group just confirmed that he completely fucked this thing up and should plan to just get the hell out, and b) we all just marched to the polls and voted for an end to this war.

Or maybe he’s just looking for a way to play this off of the incoming Democratic Congress.

Or maybe he just didn’t want to ruin Christmas for the 20,000 (or maybe 40,000) additional US troops he plans to send over to Iraq to help protect Sunni/Saudi interests in the region and double down on his bet that “the only exit strategy is victory.”

No matter what the answer, there is one constant: US soldiers and Iraqi citizens will continue to die while we all wait for Bush to bless us with his wisdom.

I’ve got much more about Iraq, the Saudis, and the “double down strategy” over on capitoilette. Please take a look.
