An Enduring Relationship

September 14, 2007

This
vision for a reduced American presence also has the support of Iraqi leaders
from all communities. At the same time, they understand that their success will
require U.S. political, economic, and security engagement that extends beyond
my presidency. These Iraqi leaders have asked for an enduring relationship with
America. And we are ready to begin building that relationship — in a way that
protects our interests in the region and requires many fewer American troops.

                                                          – excerpt of President  Bush’s address to the nation

President
Bush’s television address last night was quite probably one of the worst
speeches ever delivered by an American President, and that’s saying something
with this President, who no doubt will go down in history will go down in this countries history as it’s least intelligent President. However, when he got to this portion of his address, I said "huh"?  On one hand you have a vision of a "reduced American presence", while you tell us your ready to begin building an "enduring relationship" in that region. Wow!

Now it has been my assertion that the end of this exercise in stupidity would be permanent bases in Iraq the likes that have been established in Europe and South Korea – and Bush nearly admitted to this much:

 At the same time, they understand that their success will
require U.S. political, economic, and security engagement that extends beyond
my presidency.

So much for a "responsible re-deployment".  Can’t you just hear the music "hear comes the bride, hear comes the bride…da da de da da de da da dah!"

Bush makes it sound like the citizens of Iraq, a country that we have occupied now for 3 years through subterfuge, are standing in the streets with outstretched hands pleading for us to stay!  Give me a break.  All I can say is someone please produce the Iraqi leader who so wants this "enduring relationship".  Oh I forgot, I think he made mention of him in the speech – yesterday, he got blown up!
