Things are not going well for George Bush's unholy crusade in Iraq.

First of the report set to be delivered to Congress in September by Gen. David Petraeus will not be written by him it will be written by the White House.

Tomorrow the Pentagon will release a report stating that suicide rates in the military are at their highest rate in 26 years.

Of course there was that bombing the other day in Iraq that killed at least 250 people. As the insurgents simply moved away from where the US military is the strongest.

First off the White House is going to evaluate it's own war? The same White House that is the only source of blindly loyal support for the war? Well that just makes this report about as legitimate as a three dollar bill doesn't it? What happened to listening to the troops on the ground? Bush wants this war to continue regardless of the facts.

Now onto the 99 suicide victims who were serving in our armed forces, about a quarter of them were on duty in Iraq or Afghanistan. So not only are the “bad guys” getting our troops but also now there are those in the military that would rather die then continue to serve. Of course this number is for active duty military. It says nothing of those servicemen who returned home with PTSD and ended up dead as a result or that will someday.

The horrific bombing in Iraq the other day that killed at least 250 and maybe many more has illustrated the futility of us playing policeman in Iraq. We simply lack the manpower to do a sufficient job. It is not slight on the soldiers that they were sent in without enough troops to do the job at hand. It is the fault of leadership as is most military failure. Now our surge has led to the deaths of hundreds of Iraqis in an area that was relatively peaceful until now.

George Bush is the type of man that makes me happy I believe there is a Hell for him to fry in. Just when I think he has hit bottom he finds a way to sink even more. He has cemented his legacy as the worst president in our history so far. He is now jockeying for position in the race to be the worst leader in the history of the free world. January 20th, 2009 cannot get here fast enough.
