Bush gets himself caught in the mangle

Well that's a polite way of putting it. He's in a cleft stick situation, is another way of putting it.

He's sent 3,000 US troops to their death in Iraq. So to justify all that bloodshed he has to (he thinks) keep sending in more troops. One more heave.

He's got nothing to lose. He won't get shot. He isn't standing for election again.

Unfortunately it won't work.

So he will just get the USA stuck deeper and deeper in the mire.


  1. It seems odd that the Iraq study group urges one thing, and bush does the complete opposite.

  2. Indeed. It seems to be the little White House clique at work again.
