Wow, even as a drawing, that picture still packs a wallop.

In a phone interview with a newspaper, President Bush played down a U.S. intelligence forecast painting a pessimistic picture for the future of Iraq, including the suggestion that civil war could erupt there.

The National Intelligence Estimate was sent to the White House in July with a classified warning predicting that the best case for Iraq was "tenuous stability" and the worst case was civil war, a source confirmed to CNN.

So, essentially, Dubya miscalculated regarding Iraq's WMD, and connections to Al Qaeda, and while a case could have been made for miltary intervention due to protracted defiance of the UN, he didnt' make it, because he was too busy undercutting the UN. Now he's created conditions for an anti-colonialist insurgency, of various religious and political stripes, including the Baathists, that we supposedly "overthrew", created a playground for transnational islamic extremists, created a long-term sink-hole for U.S. Military Force ,stretching their assets thin thus limiting their flexiblity in the greater war on terror, and undermined the U.S. economy by footing 90% of the cost unilaterally thus exacerbating an already deficit-dragging economoy.

A vote for Dubya and the Republicans is a vote for losers. Go Bush!

Ghost...I think you are not understanding the timeline of that intelligence report.

It was delivered at the beginning of July--which means it took all of june to write.

Therefore, the data collection occurred from March-May which were the months of Abu Graib, Nick Berg, and before the transfer of sovereignty.

Trust me, you should let the Iraqi's tell you what they think (like Allawi's presentation to both houses of congress) before you pass judgement.

You and your band of nasayers circle the news like vultures and line up each bad thing and think it's the end of the world.

Bush will get back to ass whooping after November 2.
