Don’t mention it

Well, he lied to get us into it, and now his message informs us that there’s no “graceful” way out!

But once again, our president tells us lies and half-truths. He begins by equating Iraq with “terror” as he disregards all information that indicates that there were no weapons of mass destruction, there were no links to Al Quaida, and there was no meaningful nuclear program.

He tells us that sacrifice will be required, but he gives no details. He never mentions the loss of lives. He never mentions the horrendous cost. He never mentions the fact that while we don’t pay, our children will. He ever mentions the ill feelings that he has created throughout the world.

And now he tells us that other countries should step up and contribute. Who’s he kidding? He and Mr. Blair “went it alone”! He disparaged the United Nations, he insulted France, Germany and Russia. He continues to say that the United States will unilaterally determine the course of action, and then he further insults our intelligence by intimating that others might make meaningful contributions of troops and money.

Unfortunately his war is our war and it threatens all of us! We will continue to have our servicemen killed, it will continue to cost billions of dollars every month, we will continue to have deficits that seriously threaten our economy, and we will accomplish nothing!
