US out of Iraq now!

Two stories in the news Saturday morning that caught my attention

From Editor and Publisher:

For two years, American sergeants, captains and majors training the Iraqis have told their bosses that Iraqi troops have no sense of national identity, are only in it for the money, don't show up for duty and cannot sustain themselves.

And from ABC Daily News:

Cheney said that even with pollsters predicting that Democrats would likely make gains in both houses of Congress Tuesday, voter sentiment would not influence Bush's Iraq policy.

"It may not be popular with the public — it doesn't matter in the sense that we have to continue the mission and do what we think is right. And that's exactly what we're doing,"

The brilliant Bush regime strategy for Iraq is to continue doing things wrong. I once had a button that said "US out of___________now!" For the past four years, Iraq filled in that blank. Bush wants to keep it there until after he leaves office.

Cheney says it doesn't matter how the public votes this coming Tuesday. I'm counting on this election to make a difference. Two thirds of the American people are opposed to this madness. Hope to see you all at the polls next Tuesday.
