The George Bush Legacy

In a NSNBC poll conducted today, the following results indicate that following President Bush's speech to the nation last evening, an overwhelming majority of Americans continue to favor troop withdrawal from Iraq.

Do you agree with President Bush's plan to add 21,500 troops to those now in Iraq?

Yes. The United States can still win this thing militarily; a sizable increase in troop strength, and help from the Iraqis, will turn the tide.

No. Define "win." After nearly four years, neither our country nor Iraq is better off. More troops going out means more body bags coming back.

I'm glad - and reassured - if almost 70% of all US citizens are really so reasonable.
But are they really? Unfortunately I'm not so sure about this «detail»...
Body bags mean dead young people.
Best wishes, Don!
