Bush: Leaving Iraq now would be disaster

AP White House Correspondent Mon Aug 21, 7:52 PM ET
President Bush said Monday the Iraq war is "straining the psyche of our country" but leaving now would be a disaster.

Bush served notice at a news conference that he would not change course or flinch from debate about the unpopular war as he campaigns for Republicans in the fall congressional elections. In fact, he suggested that national security and the economy should be the top political issues, and criticized the Democrats' approach on both.

Many Democrats want to leave Iraq "before the job is done," (what effing job is what i want to know? what exactly IS our job in Iraq? why DID we invade Iraq? i don't understand. i need someone to 'splain that to Lucy) the president said. "I can't tell you exactly when it's going to be done," he said, but "if we ever give up the desire to help people who live in freedom, we will have lost our soul as a nation, as far as I'm concerned."
(Freedom? FREEDOM? King George has NO idea what the hell freedom IS)! (More...)

This lie of all the horrid lies
Nearing three thousand unkind
And a land soaked in Arab blood
The Tigris is tinted crimson
If you look close enough

Chests cracked open like eggs
In a fury upon their vibrant shells
Stacked as high as a Shire's neck
Drinking heavily at the river’s edge

This tale is of grave importance
No less than the origin of humanity
No more than the birth of God
What men have done to them all

This lie of all the horrid lies
Unearthed it comes unfamiliar
Stacks in the fresh pain of death
Upon the stench of the world’s loss
Bending of its significant weight

The most agonizing of all
Is the Shire’s maddening thirst
For it holds within its temper
What could well be our end
