I don’t know how else to put it. When the President convinced this nation to go to war he hedged his bets thinking that if we spent enough money to do the job so that we could guarantee success it might instead slow down our economy. I’ve called Bush a Texas gambler before but he never brought enough money to the table to match the card sharps at the table when they kept raising the terror quotient.
A Decade from now its possible that the world will say that Iraq was better off with our half ass help than it would have been under Saddam but then again maybe the Iraqies would have done it for themselves eventually and felt some pride in the accomplishment. I can’t forgive Bush for giving one soldier the responsibility of training 4,000 IraqiÂ guards all by himself.
