    Oh, good luck with this:


    To quote "Blazing Saddles", can't you see this is the last act of a desperate man? This is a ridiculous mish-mosh of appealing to an international community that obviously doesn't want to be involved; warmed-over ideas like benchmarks; and a U.S. troop drawdown that Bush obviously sees as inevitable, even if he won't admit it to us.

    So it's come to this: Bush flailing around in the water, about to go down for the third time, appealing desperately for someone to throw him a life preserver.

    Something else George W. Bush has run into the ground. Not got the best career history really has he?

    Watch now as the "international community" stays well clear until the next occupant of the White House takes over. Nobody wants to deal with this bunch. They'd stab you in the back as soon as look at you.

    Haha! Why? He never seemed to need them before! :rolleyes:

    If the UN wants to stay relevant at all, they'll tell him to go to hell.

    And why would anyone want this tarbaby?

    Bush is trapped in Iraq like in a burning house. He started the fire. The international community strongly urged him not to do it. He did it anyway, and then kept telling the world: stay out, keep out, it's all mine!

    We remember how he was bragging and telling the Europeans how they'd be excluded from the "bonanza" of Iraq's reconstruction contracts on account of having opposed his criminal invasion. And what happened? The Europeans said "we don't want those contracts anyway, we don't need such blood money".

    And then a funny thing happened. A loud SNAP! Bush has stepped into a bear trap! His leg is caught! He's struggling to free himself - and can't!

    The house is burning uncontrollably. Bush is starting to choke on the smoke, and the flames are creeping up his legs, he's struggling with the bear trap - CAN'T FREE HIMSELF!

    And now he looks out through the window at the world community assembled outside, watching him. He, who constantly demeaned other countries, rejected their strong voices against this madness, he who taunted them, NOW HE cries out for the world community to come rescue him so he can get out - plus he wants them to take his place inside the house, and let them fight the fire!


    I think what's gonna happen is they'll let him twist and fry. Iran and Syria, while staying outside, might occasionally reach through the window and poke him with a sharp stick, but that's about it. Iran and Syria, whom he threatened and refused to talk to. Aaah, sweet revenge...

    What's left for Bush to do?

    Fans of the movie "Saw" already know what needs to happen. Bush will be forced to grab that saw and hack off his foot to free himself from the bear trap - then he'll have to crawl through the fire and tumble out of the house. All the while the crowd jeers and laughs. Look how the arrogant have gotten their comeuppance. How low have the mighty fallen. Just deserts for the vicious criminal, the murderer and invader. And as he's crawling along the ground, blood pouring, burned and filthy, he slithers off into the bushes - as he crawls past, he's still getting a few pokes with sharp sticks from those fun loving kids: Iran and Syria.

    Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Karma's a bitch, ain't it.

    Hey, if it was just Bush hacking his own foot off I'd be less worried. Unfortunately he's hacking America's foot off. We don't deserve such treatment, but then again we let him start the fire in the first place.

    It's ugly all around. And some people still haven't learned.

    Hopefully the majority of Americans will get it through their skulls that bombing the **** out of random countries doesn't make you friends and doesn't solve any problems. Another generation of peace before the next set of morons who haven't learned anything come to power.

    "Last act of a desperate man" , part deux:


    So it seems that someone is finally starting to convince President Homer Simpson that pure brute force isn't working. I doubt this alternative plan will work either; it sounds like a last-ditch effort to keep from having to admit that the war is lost. But at least it's some acknowledgment that the status quo isn't working.

    I call this Bush's "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em" strategy. (Or is that strategery?) I wonder, though, how these insurgents are going to "share power" with the Iraqi national government or the legitimately heads of various territories?

    If you read further into that article, there's an absolutely horrifying description of how al-Qaeda tortures people, even 13 year old boys. Grisly stuff. :(

    So. He's now going to dishonour the 3,400 American troops who have died for the sacred principle of never negotiating with terrrrrists? Kudos.

    But you gotta admit, it's very Reaganesque.
