Locked in: Bush tries to tie the U.S. to Iraq after he's gone


www.post-gazette.com

The Bush administration is attempting to determine the future of U.S. involvement in Iraq long after it leaves office by "negotiating" an accord with the occupation government of Iraq.

What it is doing looks innocuous enough on the surface. The United States may have some forces in Iraq in the future, although questions like whether or not, how many and doing what should be decided by the president who succeeds George W. Bush next year.

Americans are confronted once more with a fast move by the Bush administration in pursuit of continuing its war in one form or another, as long as possible. Fortunately, Congress seems to be on to this maneuver. It must stay on top of it and not let the administration in its dying days staple the United States to Iraq until the end of time.

Yep, if it were up to this admin, they'd have us fighting in wars for the next hundred years, so they and all their cronies could keep bleeding us all dry with their war-profiteering. Hopefully congress grows a tiny semblance of a spine and stops this.

We should take note that this going against the wishes of the Iraqi majority and their tribal leadership.

This deals are only with the same people and leaders that only our government recognized to make decisions over the rightful citizens of the Iraqi nation.

The Bush administration wants to protect the new found oppressing elite growing in Iraq.

Does this sound familiar? we have done it as a nation many times, and them we question when this nations turn against us after regime change by their own citizens.

Is this deceiving to the American soldiers the families to be stuck in a nation that wants to be independent from occupation?

Is this deceiving to the so call liberate nation of Iraq?

The Bush administration wants free reign on government Issues in Iraq independent from the wishes of the citizens.

In other worlds he wants to make Iraq an official commonwealth.

I guess we can send our troops back to Europe after waiting 60+ years to come home from WW2 or even South Korea after 50+ years after that UN action ended. (oh, it hasn't, but that's not mentioned...)

I don't hear Congress being upset over those occupations, those must have been popular wars.

Congress and the House need to understand there can be only 1 Commander-in-Chief of the US Military. Not 535 Chiefs as they want.
