Hollow Words

Bush today:
"Whatever mistakes have been made in Iraq, the worst mistake would be to think that if we pulled out, the terrorists would leave us alone...

"The safety of America depends on the outcome of the battle in the streets of Baghdad...

"Osama bin Laden and other terrorists are still in hiding. Our message to them is clear: No matter how long it takes, America will find you, and we will bring you to justice...

"Winning this war will require the determined efforts of a unified country. So we must put aside our differences, and work together to meet the test that history has given us."
At this stage, a "unified country" in the USA is about as remote a possibility as a US "victory" in Iraq.
