News About Iraq

Chrenkoff notes some progress in the restoration of order to Iraq. Good news has been rare in recent days, and I appreciate as much of it as I can get.

Nicholas Berg's father made this statement:
"George Bush never looked into my son’s eyes. George Bush doesn’t know my son, and he is the worse for it. George Bush, though a father himself, cannot feel my pain, or that of my family, or of the world that grieves for Nick, because he is a policymaker, and he doesn’t have to bear the consequences of his acts. George Bush can see neither the heart of Nick nor that of the American people, let alone that of the Iraqi people his policies are killing daily."

If you want to discuss political decisions that result in death, take a look at Saddam first. He killed all of his opponents. Obviously, this man was not thinking clearly.

Newsflash -- WE ALREADY HAVE TROOPS IN IRAQ! Quit trying to judge whether the war was right and focus on what we're to do NOW. This crap with the media trying to discredit the Bush administration with grief-fueled opinions must stop. Use facts, please. The real question is: How can we withdraw troops from Iraq without leaving a chaotic mess behind?
