Now We Know Exactly What Bush Will Do

On February 8, 2004 Bush said, “I’m a war president”. On July 20 2004 Bush said, "Nobody wants to be the war president. I want to be the peace president." On November 2. 2006 Bush said Rumsfeld would remain until the end of his presidency. On November 8, 2006 Bush canned Rumsfeld. Yesterday at the NATO summit in Latvia Bush said regarding the war in Iraq, “I’m not going to pull the troops off the battlefield before the mission is complete.” That clears that up. Bush will pull the troops out of Iraq. When will the Bush administration declare the mission is once again and finally accomplished? That’s tricky but it’s inevitable. In the same speech in Latvia, Bush said there was no civil war in Iraq and that the violence and unrest was due to Al Qaeda. Bush said that when he meets with Iraq’s Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki today, his questions to him will be: “What do we need to do to succeed? What is your strategy in dealing with the sectarian violence?” Bush added, “I will assure him that we will continue to pursue Al Qaeda to make sure that they do not establish a safe haven in Iraq.” The set-up is complete. The troubles in Iraq are all about sectarian violence and they have nothing to do with the Bush administration’s attacking and occupying Iraq. The problems are now Prime Minister Maliki’s to solve. Next, Bush will declare that because Maliki is inept and has not trained the Iraqi soldiers properly, the situation has spiralled down into civil war and Bush will not commit American soldiers to fight Iraq’s civil war. Bush has assured Maliki that the United States will pursue Al Qaeda in order that it does not establish a safe haven in Iraq. Translation: Bush will not pursue Al Qaeda. At some point in the very near future, Bush will say that Maliki’s incompetence has produced a civil war, which has allowed terrorists to establish a safe haven. Bush will say the US has done all it can to pull Maliki’s chestnuts out of the fire, but our patience has run out. Iraq’s President Talabani who never liked Maliki in the first place will agree that Maliki has brought about a civil war and that Al Qaeda is now running rampant through Iraq because Maliki has been a traitor all along. The Bush administration will reluctantly agree that our soldiers have to be pulled out of Iraq to save them from a fate worse than death, even though they were sent there to bring freedom, peace and democracy to that egregiously ungrateful nation. The US will enter into diplomatic talks with Iran and Syria to try to enlist their aid in pulling Iraq out of the quagmire that Maliki has caused. Done. Mission accomplished.
