Just More Rhetoric? Yup! Look's that Way!

Last night of course was a huge night for Politics, Bush's Iraq plan was unveiled. Frankly, he's good at spouting rhetoric, heck even I was almost bought over by it, and I loathe Bush. But I think it's just that, talk, he's too afraid to give up, and his ego is too big. One thing I do know is if the democrats even let him do this it will be the last chance he gets.

This war is tiring. We need to be over and done with it once and for all.

Can Bush turn this around? Doubtable. I honestly don't see how 21,500 new troops are going to affect this war. We've lost about 5000 troops as it is, so in theory we're only really sending 15000 more than we started with. 15000 isn't much at all, how does he expect it to make any kind of difference?

Just more waste of life and money. More tears for Americans to cry as they lose more loved ones, as that is the only certainty with this plan. With more soldiers comes more bloodshed for us as well as them.

When will it end?

I'm so tired of this war. I'm even sick and tired of blogging about it. I sure hope it ends soon.

Here's what Dennis Kucinich has to say about Last Night's Speech:

Kucinich: Bush setting stage for wide war
Wednesday, January 10, 2007
WASHINGTON, D.C – Congressman and Democratic Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) issued the following statement tonight in response to President Bush's nationally televised address to the American people.
"President Bush appears to be setting the stage for a wider war in the region. He has blamed Iran for attacks on America. The President is vowing to disrupt Iran. He is going to add an aircraft carrier to the shores off the coast of Iran. He has promised to give Patriot missiles to 'our friends and allies.' Isn't one war enough for this President? It is time the media and the Congress began to pay attention to this President when he talks aggressively about Iran and Syria.
"It is imperative that Congress step up to its constitutional responsibility to restrain this abuse of executive authority by notifying the President that we will no longer agree to fund the war in Iraq. The supplemental budget request of up to $100 billion would enable the president not only to continue the war against Iraq through the end of his term. It would give him the resources to attack Iran, in the name of defending Iraq and the region."
"In Iraq, his new plan is a plan for more door-to-door fighting, more civil war, more civilian casualties, more troop deaths, more wasted money, more destabilization in the region and more separation from the world community. The President wants to send more troops to Baghdad, where they will work to quell a civil war. Only a small portion - less than 20 percent - of the new effort will be spent in al Anbar, to fight al-Qaeda. Does anyone in this Administration have any sense left at all? They are sending more US troops into the middle of a civil war!
"Congress needs to take a stand against the President and take the necessary steps to bring our troops home. We need to begin talks with Iran and Syria -- and not blame them for our misguided war in Iraq. Diplomacy is the only way to avoid a widening war. If we follow the President's path of war, we will get . . . more war."
On Monday, Kucinich announced a 12-point plan (www.kucinich.us) to withdraw troops from Iraq, establish an international security and peacekeeping force under the auspices of the United Nations, and take steps to begin the political reconciliation process, shore up Iraq’s economy, re-start reconstruction efforts, and institute reparations for Iraqis.
