Never-Ending War

Wednesday, June 29th, 2005 · No Comments

With no end in sight and the non-stop cost of war in Iraq rapidly approaching $200 billion, Bush is determined to “stay the course,” as usual.

Bush Urges Patience With Iraq War:

The speech came at a time when Bush’s approval ratings in all polls are at their lowest. The same surveys also show diminishing support for a two-year-old war, in which more than 1,700 U.S. troops have been killed. Insurgents also have intensified their attacks in recent months.

But Bush rejected setting a timetable for withdrawing U.S. forces, saying the insurgents would only wait for the final withdrawal to attack an Iraqi government unprepared to defend itself.

I’m still waiting for the day when the media will be permitted to show the coffin containing one of our brave, young, fallen soldiers coming home, or the day that Bush will have the courtesy and decency to attend one of the funerals of the troops killed in his war (if he has, I haven’t heard about it, but please correct me if I’m wrong). Both these facts infuriate me to no end — that Bush talks big, but can’t be bothered to respect the fallen troops.

Thanks to the 17 of you who have already completed my 30-second survey. If you haven’t yet taken it, please do! I’ll post results next week.

One year ago today: Hardwood. Two years ago today: Gay Pride Parade.
