'We're Going to Win'

The president finally has a plan for victory.
by Fred Barnes

It turns out you only have to attend a White House Christmas party to find out where President Bush is headed on Iraq. One guest who shook hands with Bush in the receiving line told him, "Don't let the bastards get you down." Bush, slightly startled but cheerful, replied, "Don't worry. I'm not." The guest followed up: "I think we can win in Iraq." The president's reply was emphatic: "We're going to win." Another guest informed Bush he'd given some advice to the Iraq Study Group, and said its report should be ignored. The president chuckled and said he'd made his position clear when he appeared with British prime minister Tony Blair. The report had never mentioned the possibility of American victory. Bush's goal in Iraq, he said at the photo-op with Blair, is "victory."

Win what? Victory over what? Eventually if he sticks with it, we will run out of bullets and the little missiles, and all we will have left to use, is the big "A" bomb, that should have been used at the start of the war, and maybe not have needed to put boots on the ground.. The National Guard could have been protecting America, securing our boarders, assisting in National disasters, such as Katrina, and the Mexican invasion, just like their original mission was. Not all blame goes to GB. During the 90's under Clinton, he was steadily drawing down the troop strength levels of our active forces; thus we now are depending on the reserves and NG troops, to fight in foreign lands.
