War News for September 10, 2003 Bring ‘em on: Six US DoD civilians wounded in Arbil car bombing. This attack was directed against a DIA safe house indicating that the intelligence war is going very badly Bring ‘em on: US soldier killed while defusing bomb in Baghdad. Bring ‘em on: One US soldier killed, one wounded in convoy ambush near Baghdad. Bring ‘em on: Fourteen US soldiers wounded in past 24 hours. Bring ‘em on: Six US soldiers wounded in Fallujah, Balad, and Baghdad. I included this article because it is typical of how the US media is reporting Bush’s war. In a story about how the US administration in Baghdad is failing to control the spread of armed militias in iraq, the news of three attacks and six casualties are buries in the last paragraph. The casualties in this story are also reported in the Sky News story above, and four were among the casualties I included in yesterday’s news. Bush urges Congress to invest in failure. Congressional Republicans support failure. And they still think Iraqi oil is going to pay for Bush's War. Bush’s irresponsible fiscal policy, coupled with badly-planned war damages economy. Neo-cons have hijacked US foreign policy. “But it's still a well-kept secret that the vast foreign policy mainstream -- Republican and Democratic ex-public officials, former ambassadors, military and intelligence people, academic experts -- consider Bush's whole approach a disaster.” Acting Iraqi President Chalabi calls for 10,000 Turkish troops in Iraq. Chalabi has not been indicted in Turkey nor do the Turks yet have any active arrest warrants for him, unlike many other countries in the region. Great Moments in Bush Diplomacy No. 39066 in the series: Bush tells US allies, ''not get caught up in past bickering.'' German foreign minister says Bush has failed in Iraq. France, Germany submit amendments to US draft UN resolution. “Their proposals would virtually shut out current U.S.-led occupation authorities from much of the political process, a concept Secretary of State Colin Powell and British Foreign Minister Jack Straw were certain to reject.” Japan unwilling to commit troops; may contribute transport aircraft. Sounds like our allies aren't just going to get over it, Georgie.
