The Bush Plan: Stay In Iraq For 10 Years

by- Suzie-Q @ 7:00 PM MST

In his “eighth” major Iraq speech, President Bush will tonight endorse the Gen. David Petraeus’s plan to stay 9-10 years in Iraq, prolonging the escalation until next summer. Bush will falsely allege that he supports “redeployment” from Iraq, heralding the strategy as “a way to bring a divided America together.” From excerpts of tonight’s speech:

These Iraqi leaders have asked for an enduring relationship with America. And we are ready to begin building that relationship.

Today, NBC’s Tim Russert added further details about Bush’s “long-term commitment” to Iraq:

At the end of 2008, by the best calculations, there will be anywhere from ninety to 110,000 troops still in Iraq. And if in fact there’s going to be this long term strategic relationship, that number will necessarily have to go down, but it indicates that we are in Iraq for the long, long haul.

So what would Americans have to commit to Bush’s long-term plan? Today, the Center for American Progress offered a “conservative projection,” suggesting that “we could well suffer between 8,220 and 11,167 additional deaths” and potentially 59-80,000 wounded.

Furthermore, despite three different scenarios on troop levels (70,000, 100,000, and 130,000), each adds up to well over $1 trillion in tax dollars spent on the war by FY2017.

As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stated, “The Bush-Petraeus plan of 130,000 Americans in Iraq for 10 more years is not a reduction in our footprint; it is an insult to the intelligence of the American people to call that a new direction.”

Leahy should testify, Sibley said, so he can explain his statements that the Justice Department under President Bush has “allowed our justice system to be corrupted by political influence.” Leahy is chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which oversees the Justice Department.

D.C. Madam Seeking Subpoenas for ABC News’ Brian Ross and Others

Justin Rood and Maddy Sauer Report:

The D.C. Madam wants a date with ABC News reporter Brian Ross — in court.

Facing racketeering charges related to allegations of running a prostitution ring, a lawyer for Deborah Jeane Palfrey has asked a federal judge to issue a subpoena to compel Ross and other prominent figures to testify at her trial.

Earlier this year, Ross and his investigative team were the first to review a portion of phone records from Palfrey’s “sexual fantasy service,” Pamela Martin and Associates.

In a new filing, Palfrey’s lawyer Montgomery Blair Sibley also requested subpoenas for Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., and Cindy Adams, the renowned New York Post gossip columnist.

The Washington, DC establishment is coming to a conclusion — we’re staying in Iraq. There is only one thing that can change that conclusion — the power of the people. The March against the war, scheduled for September 15th, is a unique opportunity for anti-war activists to stand in coalition with Iraq Veterans who oppose the war and have taken the lead on this historic march.

If you have not made plans to be in Washington, DC on September 15th make them now. The establishment wants the people to go away, to give up in the midst of the hopelessness of the two-party, corporate government. The Democrats are joining the Republicans to ensure Iraq is the center of U.S. military and political operations until oil runs out in the Middle East.
