No plan other than sacrificing lives to appear tough

Joshuah Micah Marshall sums up the Bush "plan" for Iraq.

Pretty good read. Once Joe average figures out that Bush is just using our children for cannon fodder so he can hold onto power for his billionaire friends, maybe then the outcry will be loud enough that the incumbants in Congress (pro war vote or no) will fear for their next election and start echoing the dissent!

It's already at about 65% nationwide and growing. Bush is spinning and not sure what way to go anymore. I'd like to see another momentum like the one Cindy Sheehan had going in August.

I'm happy to hear that at least one person read it. It really does seem to distill the obvious Bush non-plan for the future of our presense in Iraq.

Against this lack of vision and continued death and expense, a rational call for at least discussing a blueprint for handing Iraq back to Iraqis, sooner, rather than later, seems the obvious responsible course.

Last week Fat Tim grilled our party chaiman Howards Dean about the Dems not having any ideas.
Dean had no real comeback!
The response should be what is the Republican plan? To stay there forever?

Diehard, as Josh Marshall writes,

"If we're honest I think what the president is saying is this: We're going to stay in Iraq until the place calms down and we can leave with a sense that we've accomplished something.

Isn't that basically the idea?"

Only one problem with that. We could be there feeding lives into the meat-grinder for decades.
Better get a plan for withdrawal and be sane than sacrificing our men and women because Bush is afraid of being called a loser.

Bush is already being called a looser so what else is he afraid of??

Yeah, it can be just like his college or proffesional career!
He ought to be used to it by now!
