Stay the Course only Bigger and Better

I am getting very frustrated with this whole mess. Bush says he listens to the military and is not micro-managing the war in Iraq and yet he states the following on the same day that the Joint Chiefs say that increasing troop strength is not the answer. What this tells us, of course, is that Bush is lying once again when he says he listens to his commanders in the field and that he has absolutely no idea what to do next. Hey shithead...first you need to stop digging.

The following is from the Washington Post today concerning and interview with the Emperor.

President Bush said today that he plans to expand the size of the U.S. military to meet the challenges of a long-term global war against terrorists, a response to warnings that sustained deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan have stretched the armed forces to near the breaking point.

In an interview with The Washington Post, Bush said he has instructed newly sworn-in Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates to report back to him with a plan to increase ground forces. The president gave no estimates about how many troops may be added but indicated that he agreed with suggestions in the Pentagon and on Capitol Hill that the current military is stretched too thin to cope with the demands placed on it.

This decision is 180 degrees out of synch with virtually everyone in the country. Nobody except the two corporate whores McCain and Lieberman and a fringe of deranged keyboard commandos think increasing the number of American feet on the ground is a good idea. Fred Kagan over at AEI has had the idiot's ear for a few weeks now and it seems as if his warmongering and fantasy land assessment of our chances for a successful outcome in Iraq are taking hold.
I am afraid we are very near to reaching a point where the Congress just has to cut Bush's water off to a drip. No money. No Love. Just oversight.
