The Eve of Extraction

In 48 hours we'll be in the middle of the beginning of the end for George Bush the Second. Or at the least for Donald Rumsfeld. Even if the Republicans win the Senate and Congress, any Republican Congressperson would be stupid to not point fingers somewhere. They have another election to worry about in two years.

For George Bush, it'll be a long drawn out decline. I doubt he'll be impeached. There could be an inquiry, but he can drag that out for long enough that he can head off on the speaking circuit in two years with an impeachment-free record. Maybe he'll make a movie!

If you had an inkling that a new congress or a pressured president will change things in Iraq, this Guardian report might change your mind. I doubt a president can turn around the culture of the US Army in less than a decade, even if he is the chief. If the video represents anything common in Iraq, that country's troubles haven't even started to begin to end.
