Iraq: The Fully Loaded
Citrus Soda War!
Bush, ignoring EVERYBODY except, I guess, "God" and Barney, wants to make his pet war even more extreme:
President George W. Bush told U.S. lawmakers on Monday he has decided to send about 20,000 more troops to Iraq in a plan to be announced on Wednesday that Democrats denounced as an escalation of the war.We must stop this madman. Thankfully, our new Democratic majority is hinting to do just so.
The White House said Bush would address Americans on his long-delayed new Iraq plan on Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST.
Oregon Republican Sen. Gordon Smith, who a month ago said he could no longer support the war, was among senators who attended a White House meeting to discuss the president's emerging strategy for Iraq.
"It was clear to me that a decision has been made for a surge of, I suppose, 20,000 additional troops," Smith told reporters in a conference call after the meeting.
