Bush envisions U.S. presence in Iraq like S.Korea

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush would like to see a lengthy U.S. troop presence in Iraq like the one in South Korea to provide stability but not in a frontline combat role, the White House said on Wednesday.

Is there any doubt this man has lost all touch with reality and is delusional? IF and that is one big IF the Iraqi government, much less its people actually wanted us there, that might be one thing, but they don't, that much is obvious. It is disingenuous of this administration to claim that we have been invited to stay when it is a puppet government doing the inviting. We took the Soviet Union to task many times for such doublespeak. Of course we all knew this was coming, why else build all those bases or the world's largest embassy if we were only in it for the short term?
If this administration thinks that either population, the Iraqis or our own, is going to let this little comment pass, bush minor has another thing coming. We are going to see a major blow up in Iraq as a result, and outrage here at home...this is not what the voters said they wanted in November.

I know there's been a thread or two about it, but how could anyone ever think we would ever completely leave Iraq? You don't build a house if you don't intend to live in it...

It only goes to highlight the disconnect between the neo-cons running this administration and the reality. Sure they might envision it but that is not going to be the reality no matter how they spin it... either bush minor leaves or the next president will, after all the Iraqis seem to show absolutely no desire to be a colony and in the long run, short of moving or wiping out the population of Iraq and moving our own in their place, they will have the final say.

PEOPLE... What is the matter with you... despite repeated polls.... despite the message from the 2006 election bush minor is still on damn the torpedos full speed ahead mode and is unlikely to change.

50 (FIFTY) years stay in Iraq... and no comments.

THIS IS IMPORTANT!!!

50 years minimum!

Really don't see a problem with that.

We have been in Germany for over 50 years and are just recently drawing down over there.

If it was up to me, I'd make Iraq the 51st state!


OFF TOPIC....

Grover, in a couple of hours I'm heading out to your neck of the woods!

Taking a week off to visit my dad in Virginia. He lives around Richmond.

I won't be on ATS for a week! I know you will enjoy that!
