Bush is finally coming somewhat clean on the reasons he decided to invade Iraq: a longterm military presence. Trying to make it into a South Korea, however, is a joke.
The half-century US military presence in South Korea may be a model for a future in which US forces play a support role in Iraq rather than a frontline combat role, the White House said Wednesday.
“The Korean model is one in which the United States provides a security presence, but you’ve had the development of a successful democracy in South Korea over a period of years, and therefore, the United States is there as a force of stability,” said spokesman Tony Snow.
Bush and the reality thing? I don’t seem to recall anything in Korea that was similar to what is going on in Iraq: no religious/racial strife, no violence against the US….no oil….this comparison is really over the line, Smokey….
Bush is basically clueless. This comparison is just stupidity.
