Bush Defeats The Democrats

I saw it in today's paper.

The Democrats are going to redo the bill and take out language on withdrawing the troops.

For the Republicans, this is a perceived victory. And a perceived loss to the Democrats.

But is it?

If the Democrats can't get Bush removed from office, then they are going to have to play dirty. They need to let the Republicans have plenty of rope to hang themselves with. As the war continues to fail, one party or the other is going to get blamed. If the Dems are perceived to have blocked the war efforts, then they'll evnetually get blamed for the whole war.

If the Republicans get everything they want, then they'll only be able to blame us for our thoughts. After all Republicans understand that thoughts matter when it comes to roadside bombings. Negative thinking cuases bombs to kill people when they explode nearby. Positive thinking makes people immune to to bomb blasts. Or at least that's the logic we hear from the loud mouths that represent the Republican Party.

So the Republicans and Democrats are playing a game of cat and mouse on the blame game. To keep it going they have to keep the slaughter of US soldiers going. The way they implement the slaughter American soldiers, will determine who wins the next elections.

Either way, our young men and women have to keep dying, in order to keep the political games going. The noble cause that they are dying for is party politics.

Jeez, I don't want to believe this is just a political game to either party but I'm afraid it may be. I guess when you have too much greed and too much power you lose sight of reality and the real everyday world. At least that's the way it looks to me.
