This is the strategy: we get rid of Saddam while going after WMD, don't find any so we go after ragtag bombers and al Qaeda destroying Iraq's infrastructure in the process. We create a civil war killing hundreds of thousands, and now take on the enormous financial burden of rebuilding that country with contractors that have shown a history of waste, corruption and mismanagement... and tie up our military and reserves in a continuing quagmire. While the wingnuts are congratulating themselves on the success of 'the surge,' US deaths are going back up again in Iraq. January was the worst month for US troops since Sept. and Afghanistan is not getting any better.
Now, thanks to this strategy of GW Bush, America is safe, right?
A report from the Commission on the National Guard and Reserves says:
The U.S. military isn't ready for a catastrophic attack on the country, and National Guard forces don't have the equipment or training they need for the job.
A weaker America, the result of cowboy diplomacy . . . thanks Dumbya.
