President Bush is starting a 5 day campaign to try and
regain support for the war in Iraq. This is most likely going to be a failure,
much the same way his last attempts were.
In his radio address today, the President did not offer any
new or promising news from Iraq, instead he just repeated his same
justifications for the war that have been the norm since the WMD claim fell
through. This is a guaranteed sign of the speeches he will be making this week
in Utah and Idaho.
Last week at this time we kept getting varying reports out
of Iraq in regards to their constitution. Some reports said it would be done on
Sunday and others said it would definitely be done on Monday. None of the
reports said it would not be done.
Here we are 48 hours from the extended deadline and we have
not yet heard any real news out of Iraq. This is leading me to believe they will
fail to reach MondayÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s deadline, or if they do it will be such a rushed document
it will not stand a chance at ratification. Not matter what happens though, you
can almost expect an increase in insurgent attacks starting this week.
