But he is their bitch, I can see them asking and him having to say yes otherwise his stock in the States (and his future job (remember his wifes spending habits!) is going to be damaged). The Dems are no freinds to New Liebour, Tony has helped George W immensely to articulate and spin various bits of Evil bullshit to the American People. Tony could not resist any new opportunity to say 'Well you know...'
Oh the Glory of it.
Then when Tony is over there all we need is for a fine upstanding gun owning US citizen with one of those 'home defence' Barrat 50's to have a 'moment of clarity'
The US Generals who hitherto have been silenced will now be heard. Understandably many people doubt whether policy will change, I believe it will. My money is on partition. Blair will soon be on his own, at least until he gets his new orders from the boss.
With Bumsfelt out of the way, there's only one set of blokes to blame - the Generals (forgetting that George II once relished in his appointment as CinC). Not too different from the closing stages of the Vietnam war.
Perhaps it's time for Brown to step in, shuffle the cabinet and come up with a new approach.
As a matter of interest, a chain email hit my inbox this week with a number of pics; this one gripped my sh1tter. Thought I'd share it. Needless to say, I didn't post it on, risking the 'bad luck'.
Sleeve patch says 'doing the work of'. Whose war?
The Democrats can now push for inquiries into anything and everything. I reckon they should start with a full, comprehensive and fully independent inquiry into the incident that kicked all this off - 9/11. We've only succeeded in getting cover-ups, half-truths and conjecture after 5 years. At long last, this is now an opportunity to set the record straight.
Don't get your hopes up too quickly. Remember, it's 51 Democrats to 49 Republicans With Sen. Lieberman of Connecticut as the wildcard. If he votes with the Republicans on the war, it's 50-50 and Cheney breaks the tie.
The only chance Lieberman has of defecting to the Republicans is if he doesn't get what he thinks he deserves (i.e. leading seat on various committees). Given that Pelosi seems inclined to sideline candidates who voted with Bush, it's actually not beyond the realms of possibility.
