Bush decides another year of dead kids is worth it- “for politic
Oh, how the worms will feast on your eyes in hell, you worthless bastard:
Maddow: Bush extending Iraq war for political reasons
… according to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, “We suddenly have got a lot more clarity about Iraq right now than we’ve had in a really, really long time.”
Maddow cited an interview with Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki, conducted last week by Iraqi state television, during which “he said when he was negotiating with the Bush administration to pick a withdrawal date for our troops to come home, they initially settled on about 15 months from now, the end of 2010. But then … the Bush administration came back and told the Iraqis they’d actually like our troops to stay in Iraq an extra year, through 2011 … ‘due to political circumstances related to the US domestic situation.'”
“So the prime minister of Iraq says on tape,” Maddow summarized, “according to our own government’s translation, that the Bush administration wants to prolong the war in Iraq for an extra year because of our domestic politics.”
Ok, all you parents who lost children during this politically- not tactically- mandated continuation of our optional quagmire in Iraq, your children didn’t die in vain.
Well, actually? They did.
