Tick, Tick, Tick


The Iraq Study Group’s report has been given to President Bush.  As expected, the report calls for a number of initatives to get the US out of Iraq as soon as possible by having the Iraqis take more control of their own situation and involving other countries in the area in a “diplomatic offensive”.

The full report can be read here (PDF).

It doesn’t appear that there are any suprises in the report.  The interesting part will come as the Bush White House spin machine goes into overdrive to implement the recommendations of the report without being seen as going back on its “stay the course” policy.

The Iraq war, conflict, police action, freedom campaign or whatever you want to call it looks more and more like its sliding into a repeat of the Vietnam fiasco and one can only hope that they get out without abandoning the people to complete hell.
