Iraqis to Bush: Oh it's already bo-roughten!
And what do the candidates have to say about this? Well, Howard Dean has spoken up:
Dean Criticizes Bush for Reckless Rhetoric IOWA CITY, IA—“Today, President Bush provoked Iraqi militants targeting our soldiers in Iraq, saying ‘Bring them on.’ This was incredibly reckless rhetoric. “These men and women are risking their lives every day, and the President who sent them on this mission showed tremendous insensitivity to the dangers they face. This is the wrong message to send to our troops in the field and their families who wish them a safe return. President Bush should focus on encouraging the keeping of the peace, since that is now our mission.”Wouldn't it be nice to have a President who doesn't reduce everything to playground-level tactics?
