Presidential Address

I'm sending more of your children off to die!

21,500 More troops to Iraq.

In his speech (read the Whitehouse transcript here), George Bush said:
"Succeeding in Iraq also requires defending its territorial integrity and stabilizing the region in the face of extremist challenges. This begins with addressing Iran and Syria."
Keith's response:
"Only this president, only in this time, only with this dangerous, even messianic certitude, could answer a country demanding an exit strategy from Iraq, by offering an entrance strategy for Iran."
Below is Keith Olbermann's response to Bush's October 10th speech advising the nation that he is sending 21,500 more troops to Iraq:

"Before Mr. Bush was elected, he said nation-building was wrong for America.

Now he says it is vital.

He said he would never put U.S. troops under foreign control.

Last night he promised to embed them in Iraqi units."
