Do you expect that history books written in countries other than America will agree with his assessment?



His speech sort of convienently omitts to mention British and Commonwealth troops that are part of the "peace bringing" army, also that things are going so well, ( I don't think so)he's now having to re think the amount of troops he's bringing home and slow the withdrawal down.

Bush? its just words.

Toward the beginning, when 40 nations were either sending troops or otherwise helping/supporting the operation, President Bush was very careful to acknowledge our many partners, including the United Kingdom, Australia, Poland, and others. He certainly didn't intentionally exclude them. Citizens of Iraq, itself, have ultimately been the most crucial in the success there.

Nuclear and Chemical weapons that didn't exist?

Lovely Oil fields for the taking?


George W.Bush can't talk his way out of that?

But he does have a nice script to read from :D

History is always written by the winners. I'm sure that American history books will word it that way, as for the rest, I'm not so sure.

Well, the MIGHT mention the fact that there were other countries involved, the young people from other countries dying in the effort..... rather than making it seem that the US was the only one involved....
