Idiot Boy Speaks,,,,

Bush has repeatedly claimed that “as Iraqis stand up, we will stand down.” Tonight he said:

At this time last year, there were only a handful of Iraqi army and police battalions ready for combat. Now, there are more than 125 Iraqi combat battalions fighting the enemy … more than 50 are taking the lead … and we have transferred more than a dozen military bases to Iraqi control.

If that’s true, why are there still 153,000 American troops in Iraq, as many as there have ever been? Why can’t 125 battalions replace a single American soldier?

Good Fucking Question!!!

I missed his speech - I was out doing my laundry. This am I heard a snippet of it on NPR, where he was saying that if we leave Iraq now, it sends a message to the rest of the world that we don't keep our promises.

(I nearly drove off the road)

Memo to Jorge: the rest of the world figured that out in 2001, and are further convinced with each passing day.
