President Bush on Wednesday warned there will be an upsurge in violence in Iraq before next month's voting, but said the terrorists will fail. "Our troops are ready for them," he said.Huh?
If U.S. troops "are ready for" the insurgents, then why will the insurgents be successful in raising the level of violence?
It's one thing to say our troops will respond swiftly when violence happens, but to say we're ready for the insurgents is to mislead the American people. We're no more ready for the insurgents than Michael Brown was ready for Katrina.
