"We're at war. We're facing an enemy that is ruthless. If we put out a (pullout) timetable the enemy would adjust their tactics. ... The timetable depends on our ability to train the Iraqis, to get the Iraqis ready to fight and then our troops will come home with the honor they have earned," Bush said in a speech.
"Their families can know that American citizens pray for them, and the families can know that will honor their loved ones' sacrifice by completing the mission, by laying the foundation for peace for generations to come," Bush said in remarks to the American Legislative Exchange Council.
"They have to complete the mission" - but we don't know what the mission is.
"We will train the Iraqi Army to deal with the insurgents" - despite the fact that WE can't deal with the insurgents.
"We are fighting them over there so that we don't have to fight them over here" - which is why we are going to let the Iraqi Army handle it as soon as they can.
"We are over there for OUR National Security" - and we will soon place our National Security in the hands of the Iraqi Army.
The only thing scarier than the horrible intellectual stew that Bush is trying to cook up and serve to the American People - is the fact that there are actually people willing to swallow it.
