Bush is admitting he was wrong on Iran, wrong on staying the course in Iraq, and wrong on Afghanistan. Changing to Obama's desires! Why you ask?

Watch any of or all 9 short videos on Obama and McLame's plan for Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan, and backstabbing by McCaine

Then I would be remiss if I let go the fact that the chief scum has claimed executive privilege once again this time to protect is and Cheney's lies. That scum is going to get away with lying, treason, and all the underhanded things he has done and he has not earned the right to claim executive privilege. I am sickened he can even call himself President. He is not my President and has done nothing right for America or the world let alone Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan. I am sick of this scum thinking he deserves anything

Anyway Bush is admitting he was wrong on Iran as The United States in the next month will announce plans to establish a diplomatic presence in Tehran for the first time in 30 years, a British newspaper said on Thursday. "The Guardian has learned that an announcement will be made in the next month to establish a U.S. interests section in Tehran, a halfway house to setting up a full embassy," the paper's Washington correspondent, Ewan MacAskill, said in its front-page, unsourced report. "The move will see U.S. diplomats stationed in the country." But senior U.S. diplomat Undersecretary of State William Burns said in testimony to Congress last week the United States has not cemented its decision. The Guardian said the development was "a remarkable turnaround in policy by President George Bush, who has pursued a hawkish approach to Iran throughout his time in office." In a break with past policy, the Bush administration is sending Burns to observe talks in Switzerland with Iranian nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili. U.S. to Establish First Diplomatic Presence in Iran Since 1979

Seems to me that this is an effort to minimize efforts by Obama and to make it "appear" like Bush is trying Diplomacy while paving the way for his would be predecessor McDink! plus after Obama's marvelous speech on defense and moving forward in Iraq and Afghanistan Bush appears to be trying to minimize Obama and do his bidding while once again paving the way for McCain. Pentagon leaders on Wednesday signaled a surge in U.S. forces in Afghanistan "sooner rather than later" — a shift that could come later this year as they prepare to cut troop levels in Iraq. Faced with an increasingly sophisticated insurgency, particularly along Afghanistan's border with Pakistan, defense officials said sending more troops would have a significant impact on the violence.

"I think that we are clearly working very hard to see if there are opportunities to send additional forces sooner rather than later," Defense Secretary Robert Gates told Pentagon reporters. But, he added that no final decisions or recommendations have been made. His comments suggested an acceleration in what had been plans to shift forces there early next year. And they came as the political discourse on Afghanistan as a key military priority escalated on both Capitol Hill and the presidential campaign trail. Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who recently returned from meetings with commanders in Afghanistan, said they clearly want more troops now.

"It's a tougher fight, it's a more complex fight, and they need more troops to have the long-term impact that we all want to have there," said Mullen, who also met last week with Pakistani leaders. The Pentagon has been wrestling with how to provide what they say is a much needed military buildup in Afghanistan, while they still have 150,000 troops in Iraq. Gates and Mullen have repeatedly said they would have to reduce troop levels in Iraq before they could dedicate more forces to Afghanistan. Mullen, who was in Iraq last week, told reporters that he is likely to recommend further troop reductions there this fall. He said he found that conditions in Iraq had improved more than he expected. less troops in Iraq more in Afghanistan sound familiar

* Bush has done exactly nothing right during his entire mis Presidency! He is making at least an appearance of doing the right thing as Afghanistan is increasingly failing as he guaranteed it would by attacking Iraq to ultimately go after Iran and get this entire manufactured mess going full scale. The perfect storm will not be avoided and is coming closer every day.Bush is merely creating another facade of doing the right thing this time to minimize the effectiveness of Obama's campaign. Nothing will change the mess of the entire world especially too little too late!

I've said it many times, Jim, we could shift all 150,000 troops and 175,000(?) private contractors from Iraq to Afghanistan, and we still ain't gonna win. We may delay the inevitable, but we can't stop it.

Of course you are entirely right. Bush guaranteed a loss of all of it the day he diverted from Afghanistan to go after Iraq to get at Iran. As we keep talking about, Muslims just wanted us off all their lands so instead the idiot attacks them is he could get his Forever War going. It is here only the fools don't know it and no one will change or stop what is still just beginning while they play their worthless Political games! Oh man!

I'm afraid you are right Bud. I think they are already there and only need to gather strength. My son in Iraq wishes he was back there but all this combat is taking a physical toll on him if nothing else. He is a tough one and I have to wonder about everyone else.
I didn't post on it but I saved the link on a lot of soldiers in Iraq want to get into the real war in Afghanistan. I don't friggen know!

"Bush is admitting he was wrong on Iran, wrong on staying the course in Iraq, and wrong on Afghanistan."

Don't believe a word out of his mouth, he's up to no good!

an average patriot said...

Hell Karen you know he would never admit it in words but look at his actions or stated goals for the future in Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan. But you know, like everything else with the scum he will put the actual correct action up to someone else.

Bush is pretending to look at Iran differently while he is getting ready to attack Iran for some upcoming pretend reason.

Son of a gun! Always a pleasure to have your input. We are always in sync. I just wish you would follow up! This is just another cover before Bush screws them so he can say see I tried. The scum!
