The stupidity continues…

From NBC News:

President Bush used his veto pen for only the second time Tuesday after Congress sent him a war spending bill that would impose timelines to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq, which he called a “prescription for chaos.”

No. Invading Iraq with a few post-war contruction plans written on the back of a stained cocktail napkin is a “prescription for chaos.” What the war opponents are trying to do is stop the spilling of American blood on foreign soil in pursuit of unattainable goals.

The bill is unacceptable because it “substitutes the opinions of politicians for the judgments of our military commanders,” the president said in a nationally televised address to explain why he was vetoing a bill that would also provide more than $100 billion in emergency spending for the war.

And how many times did civilian leadership interfer with Tommy Frank’s war plans? Lots. Rumsfield thought a lean fighting force could get the job done despite opposing views form real military commanders.

“This is a prescription for chaos and confusion, and we must not impose it on our troops,” Bush said. “… It makes no sense to tell the enemy when you plan to start withdrawing.”

Taking this logic to its ridiculous conclusion, we will never be able to withdraw from Iraq, because any plans to do so would be a heads up to the guerillas to bunker down and wait. Does Bush and his followers really support an open-ended troop presence in Iraq?

This president has zero credibility on any all things Iraq-related.  How many Americans must die before this madness comes to an end?
