Topic: President Bush's Press Conference on Iraqi plans


President Bush does what he is good at: Talking to press honestly
  • I know some in Washington would like us to start leaving Iraq now. To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we are ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region, and for the United States. It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to al Qaeda. It would mean that we'd be risking mass killings on a horrific scale. It would mean we'd allow the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan. It would mean increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous.
President Bush is right on the money. Unfortunately, leftists MSM and politicians can not bring themselves up to understand the stakes.

Same empty statements he has been making for more then a year. He simply used a flawed debate tactic (slippery slope) to back up his opinion. It is obviously more scare tactics, and I honestly think the American people are starting to see through it.

Im not saying I am in favor of leaving now, but I can say that Bush is not making his reasons for staying very persuasive.

Exactly right, there is absolutely nothing new. Its the same "Mission Accomplshed" tagline we have been spoon fed since 2003. It amazes me how some people can still buy the same lie year after year.

If you look at the Iraqi progress report the Iraqi government has only met half of its goals -and President Bush calls that "progress".

"Progress" toward what? Total Regional War?
