Today's Cartoon: President Bush Sends More Troops to Iraq

After actually admitting that he had made "mistakes" in Iraq, President Bush immediately went ahead and made yet another one, by condemning 20000 more US troops to Baghdad, to try and referee an escalating civil war (which he created) between two factions that hate each other almost as much as they hate the United States. Although this doesn't make much sense to me, perhaps it is President Bush's logic that while two "wrongs" don't make a "right"... four or five in a row might eventually do the trick.

The Bush administration's efforts to rebuild Iraq have been about as painful as watching someone try to glue together a hornet's nest, after using it as a piñata. Unfortunately, now it seems that the President's "last throes" in Iraq are intended solely as a way of lobbing the conflict onto the next administration, so that it can blow up in their face instead of his.

So while all the king's horses and all the king’s men may not be able to put Iraq together again, at least they might be able to hold the pieces together long enough for his highness to gracefully get out of town.
