Dear President Bush,
I saw you recycled language previously associated with Cindy Sheehan for the new Iraqi government.
"The formation of a unity government in Iraq is a new day for the millions of Iraqis who want to live in peace," Bush said. "And the formation of the unity government in Iraq begins a new chapter in our relationship with Iraq."
Does this mean you are with them or against them? In referring to Cindy Sheehan’s plight you used similar language last summer.
President Bush said he thought that most mothers, regardless of their religion, would prefer to live in peace rather than violence.
At the same time the nation saw the Bush attack arm vilify Mrs. Sheehan. What do you have in store for the Iraqi people? Should they worry about being arrested for wearing the wrong t-shirt? Or do you have something more sinister in store for them like ensuring the people’s oil profits end up in the hands of newly elected political leaders?
Could it signify a shift toward Cindy’s suggestion, bringing all troops home from Iraq? Prime Minister Blair suggested all reasons for insurgency had been eliminated with the swearing in of the new government. As some fight to get foreign troops off their soil, is Mr. Blair foreshadowing troop withdrawals with his comments? Were that true, the irony would be delicious….
