George Bush has argued long and hard that the front line against terror is the war in Iraq and that the Iraq war is defeating terrorism and making the U.S (and the world) a safer place.
Now a leaked classified report from all 16 U.S. intelligence agencies shows that Bush’s arguments are rubbish. The report concludes the war in Iraq has spawned a new wave of Islamic radicalism and increased the global threat of terror. Bush’s position is turned on its head. After almost 3000 American military dead and thousands of civilians killed, we now learn from an authoritative intelligence source in the US itself that the whole reckless Iraq war is counterproductive.
The decision to go to war is the most serious an American president can make. It now turns out that Bush’s prodigal expenditure of treasure and lives in Iraq has made the world less safe.
Is this not a reason for impeachment? Could there be a more serious reason? Nor is talk of impeachment (growing in the U.S) all that far-fetched. Polls now show that the Democrats will retake the House in the November elections and have a good shot also of winning the Senate. If this happens I predict George Bush will be impeached. What do you think?
