w.Caesar is doing well with the doublespeak.
Yesterday, when asked about Fallujah, he said they were commited to securing the town despite the resistance.
Q Mr. President, is it going to take an all out military offensive to put down the insurgency in Fallujah? And can you really have a successful transfer of power in 60 days if Iraq is wracked by violence?
PRESIDENT BUSH: ... Our commanders on the ground have got the authorities necessary to take action to help the Iraqi people realize a free and peaceful society. And what you must realize is happening in a place like Fallujah is, the closer we come to passing sovereignty, the more likely it is that foreign fighters, disgruntled Baathists or friends of the Shia cleric will try to stop progress. That's what's happening. They want to kill innocent life to try to get us to quit. And we're not going to. And our military commanders will take whatever action is necessary to secure Fallujah on behalf of the Iraqi people. [the emphasis is mine]
Meanwhile, the US Marines are bugging out of Fallujah itself, leaving a former Saddam general and 1100 Iraqi soldiers to form the Fallujah Protective Army.
I guess it's better to let Iraqis die securing a dangerous town. It's been a tough month already with more US troops/"contractors"/mercenaries killed [126 and counting] in April than during the entire "war" last spring. It's been tough on the Iraqis too, ten times tougher actually [1200 deaths and counting].
As much as this isn't a Vietnam for the USA, it's looking more and more that without an exit strategy, with corporate pillaging, and with no sovereign body in place yet to receive control of the country in two months, w.Caesar is writing off Iraq to entrenched civil war, which oddly may severely cost his corporate buddies hoping for a stable economy to rape.
Perhaps the only arena w.Caesar can control is the oval office, like today with the 9/11 commission in there. Without cameras. Without an official transcript. Without an audience or any public accountability. And most importantly without having to speak under oath.
It's a true testament to the actual state of democracy that people still trust w.Caesar. Stunning.
