The Brown-Bush Summit: Today's Cartoon

The meeting between President Bush and Gordon Brown was an attempt by the two leaders to find common ground on common ground... Iraq; and while Brown was keen to let it be known that his nation remained committed to fighting the battle against "Terrorism", he remained quite vague on the capacity of Britain's involvement.

In fact, both leaders appeared somewhat cautious when discussing Iraq; perhaps because much of the actual decision-making has been left for the military commanders on the ground to do for them, which arguably makes this dynamic duo the most ineffective"crime-fighting" unit since the Baghdad police force.

The way I see it, if they didn't need (or heed) the military's advice before jumping into Iraq than the British and U.S. government shouldn't suddenly have to rely on it to hop back out. Besides the army is trained to follow orders, not give them; especially to those with a long history of avoiding the military.
