Bush ignores Joint Chiefs as Iraq, middle east Breakdown is on the Fast track!

The Washington Post reported yesterday that the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the leaders of the various branches of the American armed forces that advise the President on military policy, are unanimously opposed to a White House plan to send an extra 15,000 to 30,000 troops to Iraq for the next eight months. This morning I woke to hear he wants to enlarge the military. Under him that is a scary thought!
Mind boggling to me it that Bush will ignore even the joint chiefs. To me the Joint Chiefs have always been the guide of the military compass but the decider will screw them too to stay the course for what he mistakenly thinks will be a new middle east order.
I just hope Bush is not stupid enough to use those troops to capture or kill Al Sadr. Iraq was lost from day one sending in more troops is just a waste of American lives and if Al Sadr is killed that will spark the absolute end for America not just in Iraq but around the world.

The military officials say a small surge in US troop numbers will only exacerbate levels of violence in the country, the newspaper reported, without giving the coalition or Iraqi soldiers a decisive advantage over the sectarian militias and militant groups that are driving the fighting.
I refuse to believe that Bush can openly defy the advice from the Joint Chiefs at such a critical time caused by Bush's idiocy and he will continue on in order to stay the course for his failed from the start plan for new middle east order. What a mess and this is still just starting!
The Joint Chiefs think the White House, after a month of talks, still does not have a defined mission and is latching on to the surge idea in part because of limited alternatives, despite warnings about the potential disadvantages for the military, said the officials," the newspaper reported.
Of course they are right but they should have mentioned the failure of this plan in Vietnam and no one is taking into account the voracity of the enemy. Nothing Bush can do will stop this total breakdown from happening. Shiite and Sunni Religious leaders do not want Bush's unified Democracy. They want to be their own leaders under their own conditions. In the end they will have their way period!
Bush ensured the breakdown of the entire middle east when he diverted from the so called war on terror to attack Iraq , destabilize the middle east, and set up his new order but with the Islamists on the other side wanting theirs it will be absolute disorder.
In Palestine Hamas has also been emboldened and empowered to continue their quest for dominance in this so called new middle east order. Supporters of the rival Palestinian movements Hamas and Fatah engaged in fierce gun battles in Gaza City Tuesday, killing at least five people, injuring more than 20 others and shattering a shaky internal Palestinian truce.

The deaths Monday evening and Tuesday brought to six the number of Palestinians killed since the truce and to at least 17 the number of people killed in more than one week of internal fighting. Dozens more have been injured and this too will get worse as it continues out of anyone's control.
As you know, there have been on and off talks over the last 6 months But they have stalled over Hamas' refusal to recognize Israel's right to exist and accept past Israeli-Palestinian agreements calling for a two-state solution. I heard today that they were back on but they will fail. When all is said and done in this issue Hamas will have their way and the middle east breakdown will continue.
We are hearing warnings of world mayhem and chaos if we fail in Iraq. That should be thought of before attacking Iraq not after. Regardless, it would have and will happen. Bush just sped up the process.
Iraq is lost and the entire middle east and Afghanistan will follow thanks to Bush. The entire so called civilized world will pay the price for Bush's idiocy not just in the middle east but around the closing I will say that what is going to happen would have happened in the long run. Once again Bush has taken an ongoing problem and put it on the fast track thanks to his mismanagement.

Hard to believe that a president would do the exact opposite of what the Iraq Study Group suggested and the Joint Chiefs supported, isn't it?! And yet, it is genuine GWBush in full fashion!

You aren't kidding. Especially the joint chiefs. Now the chief idiot wants a larger Army. I am scared to death to think what he will do with that.
With another carrier Group heading to the middle east you have to wonder who he is going to attack next, Syria, or Iran as I believe!
