Your boy Bush last night, in defense of an unpopular war, ordered gradual reductions in U.S. forces in Iraq saying, "The more successful we are, the more American troops can return home.''
"The principle guiding my decisions on troop levels in Iraq is: return on success,''... Wasn't that the title of an In Flames album a few years ago?
Bush said 5,700 U.S. soldiers would be home by Christmas and that four brigades -- at least 21,500 troops -- would return by July, along with an undetermined number of support forces. Now at its highest level of the war, the U.S. troop strength stands at 168,000.
With no dramatic change in course, Bush's decision sets the stage for a fiery political debate in Congress and on the 2008 presidential campaign trail. Democrats said Bush's modest approach was unacceptable.
But couldn't have Bush gotten his haircut a day or two prior to the TV speech? He has that "I just got a haircut" head thing going on; like his hair was cut six minutes before the cameras started rolling.
I mean, c'mon bro. You've got Osama dying his beard all black and strong, you've gotta keep up with the shit man. The world is watching and you looked like you just walked out of the Lemon Tree.
