Bush Vetoes War Funding

I love the way the issue is framed, "Bush veto puts new pressure on Democrats".

As Bush puts it, "This is a prescription for chaos and confusion and we must not impose it on our troops," Bush said in a nationally broadcast statement from the White House. "It makes no sense to tell the enemy when you plan to start withdrawing."

Bush doesn't want objectives, missions, timetables, goals or any of the other elements of war that military leaders use to gauge success.

but then Bush told us already that its not his job to win or lose the war. Its his job to keep the war going until the next administration takes over.

Bush has told us a number of times what his job is. Not once has he told us that it has anything to do with his oath to uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States of America. I wonder who tells Bush what his job is?

Republicans are really beginning to show the strain now. Meacham from Newsweek shows his support by telling us that the War against Iraq is as innocent as gambling. As he describes it, Bush tossed a die out there (The troops), and hoped it land on a six. The operative word is 'Hope'. And that's not normally how you fight wars. You don't just toss troops into a battle with no plan and hope they win objectives that are unknown. Meacham's odds are 1 in 6 that the troops will win, and 5 in 6 that our troops will get slaughtered and we'll lose the war.

And he makes this argument in support of Bush!

Republicans are turning on Bush. Tenet is suddenly realizing that he is vulnerable and is twisting in the wind. They are beginning to realize that the war itself is the plan.

After all, if we define what victory is, won't that embolden the terrorists? Won't they then try to prevent victory?

General Patreaus recently told us that he has troops at the ready to take this offensive to the next level. And coincidentally, the Iraqi Parliament is about to go on vacation. This war is about to get much worse, and its going to have a severe impact on the Republican chances in the next election. The death toll on both sides are going to be increasing dramatically as the election nears.

Obviously this is intentionally. Bush has a lifelong history of screwing his friends over. I hope they like it.
