sonofabush to make sure the sacrifice of the 3,000 "was not made in vain."
Edited on Mon Jan-01-07 06:00 AM by Philosoraptor
At Bush's Crawford, Tex., ranch, deputy White House press secretary Scott Stanzel said the President was planning a new strategy for Iraq to make sure the sacrifice of the 3,000 "was not made in vain."

Army Gen. John Abizaid, the head of the Central Command, and the military service chiefs warned against a troop increase last month.

In his New Year's message to the nation and the troops, Bush made no mention of casualties and did not indicate when he will spell out the "new way forward" in Iraq he has promised to disclose this month.

He pledged to "work toward a free and unified Iraq" in the coming year and said, "We will answer history's call with confidence and fight for liberty without wavering."
----------------------------------------------

What will the final tally be in the great casualty counter in the sky? Will it be 6 thousand dead soldiers before it's all over? 10,000? Or will we at least try to equal the paltry Vietnam sums?

3000 of our sons and daughters are dead now, and America still stands exactly as it was 6 years ago. Iraq is still swimming in rivers of blood, the president wants to send tens of thousands more into the vortex, how many will it ultimately take to satisfy our wealthiest, most powerful men?

3. what a nightmare
The level of ignorance from this guy is embarassing. At least I'm not about to die or get maimed because of it, but, you know, all too many have and will. It's devastating to even think about. I have to tune out every now and then, otherwise I'd be sending myself to the grave listening to this idiot. My blood boils every time he opens his mouth and shames our country.

4. Making sure they didn't die in vain will never happen.
Making sure they didn't die in vain means 10,000 more must die in vain.

9. how many more commas?
how many more will it take so it won't be in vain?

In his New Year's message to the nation and the troops, Bush made no mention of casualties and did not indicate when he will spell out the "new way forward" in Iraq he has promised to disclose this month.


no indiation when he was going to learn to spell? Maybe instead of playing with "THE GOOGLE", he should try THE SPELLCHECKER
