The Freedom March . . .

About 1 1/2 years ago, I made the following comments on my old blog site. I still stand by it. Iraq is like a bad car accident you wish you had never seen. I bolded the comments I'm most proud of, and ring true today, three years after the invasion of Iraq. Company . . . March . . .

PS - And Bush still reminds of a used car sales man, except he's still trying to sell a war that started three years ago.

Freedom Is On the March . . .

Those are the words of President Bush . . . “freedom is on the march” . . . he said those words when he accepted the Republican Party nomination for President, and he said it again yesterday . . . “freedom is on the march”.

Less than two weeks ago the 1,000 death mark was surpassed in Iraq, and sadly, this week, the 1,035 death mark was surpassed . . . freedom marches on.

The lack of planning for this war is on a level of irresponsibility that far surpasses the actions of any Administration to occupy the White House for the last thirty years.

By focusing on reconstruction, we can see how the situation in Iraq is volatile at best. When volatility is the best case scenario, as the July 2004 National Intelligence Estimate makes clear, it makes President Bush look like a used car salesman . . . in this case we’re stuck with a four year lease . . . and no guarantee. Throw on top of that: worn down tires, no gas, a broken windshield, missing headlights, and driver who insists on driving with his eyes closed, and no seat belt, you’ve got what the next four years would be like.

Without reconstructing Iraq’s infrastructure, we can’t win the peace and spread democracy – which I’m not sure you can do with a barrel of a gun anyway.
