President escalates war in Vietn.....Iraq.
Just when we thought it could not get any worse, the Great Decider is going to make a really bad situation more disasterous. Not only is he trying to send an another 21,000 American men and women into harm's way in Iraq, he evidently thinks we need to stir things up more and is planning on sending in a U.S. Naval Task Force to patrol the coast off Iran.
Why not poke our finger into Iran's eye and shake up that hornet's nest? Lets get the dysfunction we have created in Iraq to metastasize?
Nevermind that the voters said no to this growing mess in Iraq. Bush is the Commander-in- Chief and he must think he knows better than the generals, the Congress, and of course the people.
A week ago last Monday night I joined the weekly protest in Ferndale against the war that takes place at the corners of Nine Mile Road and Woodward. Every Monday night from about 4:30 pm until about 6 pm protesters have gathered at those corners for the past four years.
Last week there were about 16 of us.
Maybe next week there will be more.
The American people are going to have to raise the level of the noise being generated against this war. Escalating the Vietnam war into Cambodia and Laos did not work. It just got thousands more people killed. Why are we standing for this repeat of history?
