Fire Bush, al-Maliki and Congress
“It’s not up to the politicians in Washington, D.C., to say whether he will remain in his position,”—President Bush said of Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki of Iraq.
This recent statement of sheer arrogance reflects the type of thinking that brought the United States to the precarious place it is at, in the eyes of many its more intelligent citizens and in the eyes of the world community. What bothers me though is not just Mr. Bush's complete disregard for Congress, but the fact that Congress is still funding a futile war when they have the power to redirect the course of America whether or not Mr. Bush keeps Mr. Maliki in power. If there was no money to fund the war, there would be no continued relationship with Mr. Maliki.
The country elected in a democratic congress , yet even the democratic senators in this country proceed to give Mr. Bush a blank check over and again to create more and more chaos. If one more penny is issued toward Iraq, I believe it should be for transportation for the 160,000 troops that are sentenced to be there risking their lives. I'm also curious why Mr. Bush is so defensive of Mr. Maliki when Maliki proves to be incompetent. Is Mr. Maliki helping Mr.Bush and his chronies to further their wealth? Rhetorical question.
