tvoivozhd---eloquent, deadly logical article---a completely true and a 
damning  condemnation of  Bush  stupidity---but anyone with more 
intelligence than a  roach knows that already.  The "Apres Moi Le 
Deluge" President is focussed on  losing in Iraq, destroying the middle 
class, kicking out all the rungs in the ladder for the poor to enter the 
middle class, conducting the most vicious and successful class warfare 
we have ever seen---and issuing a blizzard of lies about the war and the 
economy to win the next election..

Still, as a serious student of warfare, and Ex-Commander of the 538th 
Fighter Bomber Group, I am even more fearful of  the consequence of 
Cut-and-Run.  I do not know if Iraq is salvagable on any basis, but I 
feel we must try until and if we are driven out.  Maybe the U.S. 
military commanders in Iraq can turn off their hearing aids---General 
Tommy Franks retired to get away from the Great Micromanager in the 
White House.
