Calling bullshit


WASHINGTON - It's become President Bush's mantra, his main explanation for why he won't withdraw U.S. forces from Iraq anytime soon.
In speech after speech, in statement after statement, Bush insists that "this is a war in which, if we were to leave before the job is done, the enemy would follow us here."
The line, which Bush repeated Wednesday in a speech to troops at California's Fort Irwin, suggests a chilling picture of warfare on American streets.
But is it true?
Military and diplomatic analysts say it isn't. They accuse Bush of exaggerating the threat that enemy forces in Iraq pose to the U.S. mainland.

Equally idiotic is McCain's -- and others'-- assertion that if we leave we'll just have to go right back.

    we're not going to leave because bush never intended to leave, thus the military bases presently under construction. he simply intends to occupy iraq for the benefit of the military industrial complex and big oil.
