I find it both incomprehensible and unconscionable that Congress is allowing Bush to decide how we should proceed in Iraq. Bush has criminally blundered his way through five years of immoral, illegal and dishonest catastrophic war. Countless lives have been sacrificed day by day and year by year because of his arrogance, stubbornness, stupidity and incompetence. His disastrous foreign policy has driven the Middle East to the brink of a regional civil war between the two main denominations of Islam. He's turned us into a debtor nation primarily owned by foreign banks, mostly Chinese and Arab. And as a result of this horrific and disastrous track record, Congress is allowing him to decide our future and the fate of the free world.
It is often said that America is run like a corporation. In what board room would this degree of breathtaking incompetence and malfeasance be tolerated? Do we recruit ambulance drivers from the ranks of mulitiple DUI offenders?
Between the shocking results of the Foley "ethics" investigation and Nancy Pelosi's insistence that impeachment proceedings against Bush and Cheney would be "divisive" and nothing more than partisan politics, it is very clear that the vast majority of Washington politicians of both parties are more concerned with the interests of their exclusive club than they are with the interests of the American people and the moral and ethical core of this nation.
