Of one thing I am sure: things are going from bad to worse in Iraq. The Middle East is increasingly unstable and now there is talk of expanding the war into Pakistan, if not Iran. Turkey is menacing Iraq’s border. The Palestinian cauldron bubbles.
Our military has been pushed to its limits and our soldiers are sometimes bombing blindly. Many of our soldiers are returning to Iraq after multiple deployments. Iraqi civilians continue to be killed and terrorized.
We are growing Al-Qaida.
Bush is construing for himself powers strictly prohibited by the design, language and intent of the Constitution.
Our Congress is afraid to move.
It is a dark time in America.
