Is the 'surge' setting up a huge explosion in Iraq?

The 'surge' is going to blow up in our faces. The only question is, is Bush doing this deliberately so he can say 'I told you so' when Iraq explodes when we leave, or is this just another status quo insanely incompetent decision in a long line of insanely incompetent decisions? As George is fond of pointing out, history will be his judge. Personally, I think he needs to be in front of a real judge.

One Surge Result: Both Sides Better Armed & Trained

Inadvertantly or not, Bush is setting up Iraq to explode in violence when US troops withdraw. The US is funding, training and arming both Shia factions and Sunni factions, but not doing anything diplomatically to improve things in Iraq. This tragic combination will greatly increase the likelihood that Iraq will be engulfed in bloodshed after we leave.

Bill Moyers Reviews the Documentary 'Taxi to the Dark Side'

This disturbing documentary begins with the story of an innocent Afghan taxi driver picked up by American forces and beaten so badly he died within days. Does that make you proud to be an American? The title is a play on Cheney's words about taking off the gloves and going over to the dark side.

Digital Pamphleteers

Guilty Behavior

The Bush gang fought having an investigation into 9/11 for over a year. Then when they had to cave to pressure from the victim's families, they appointed a bunch of White House insiders and friends, and underfunded the investigation. Then they wouldn't testify under oath or even on the record. Now we find out they fought to conceal records. I'm sorry but that makes me very, very suspicious.
