What I don't understand is why Bush felt it necessary to invent a new strategy inside his group of trusted, but obviously poor strategists, and then sell it to Congress. Why doesn't he enlist the Congress to work with him to develop a strategy first, and then present a fully supported and detailed plan to support that strategy to the American people? This is just more of the same old mile long spun yarn story that is just going to be lost to a long, and unfortunately, partisan series of delaying and debilitating debates.
This is a problem that, if George's overall assessment of how serious the conditions in the Middle East are today are even near accurate, is beyond America to fix alone. Yeah, we burst this pimple and should be held accountable - there are other more effective ways to address acne other than just squeezing zits - but the cure is something the entire civilized world has a very deep stake in, so they should be encouraged to participate. Also unfortunate is the fact that George cannot even enlist Congress to help, so it will be impossible for George to enlist the UN or any of our former Allies, and other concerned nations, to develop a suitable strategy and plan. We are left with little choice but to leave Iraq, ASAP.
If Ms. Rice was doing her job, there would be other nations participating in the strategy making phase and signed up for the executing a plan phase. I guess it is too much to expect Bush's cadre of loners to actually do their jobs if it involves collaborating with their peers, wherever they may live. Jim
