Musings 193--The truth finally comes out!

Some of us knew that Bush jr. never really intended to ever leave the middle east. Leaving a small footprint was just so much bologna. It was what the pundits said to make us all feel better. Well, now even Bush jr, is admitting that we will never leave Iraq. (See link)

I guess when you are a lame duck president you can finally get around to telling the American people the truth. Bush jr. and his buddies wanted a permanent presence in the middle east, and now we have it. No wonder the president is not for timelines. A timeline means that you are leaving. We are there forever.

According to the above link: White House spokesman Tony Snow said Bush would like to see a U.S. role in Iraq ultimately similar to that in South Korea in which "you get to a point in the future where you want it to be a purely support model."

"The Korean model is one in which the United States provides a security presence, but you've had the development of a successful democracy in South Korea over a period of years, and, therefore, the United States is there as a force of stability," Snow told reporters.

For more than 50 years we have had a military presence on the Korean peninsula. About 35,000 troops have been locked in there since the end of the Korean War. They aren't coming home any time soon; even though the Korean's are totally self-sufficient. Iraq will be the same only bloodier.

Bush jr. needs to be impeached for not leveling with the American people. It was his and his neo-cons buddies' plan all along to control the oil fields of Iraq. Bush jr. has given the United States the start of an imperial presidency. The war in Iraq has ended and the occupation has started in earnest. So the truth has finally come out. We might be out of Iraq in 50 or 75 years...or never.
