Bush: No Iraq Pull Out Until 'Mission is Complete'So, at least no secret plan to end the war in the next two weeks.
President Bush met today with his top advisers and military commanders on Iraq, but he offered no indication of change in strategy in his weekly radio address where he vowed not to pull U.S. troops out until "the mission is complete" and said one of the causes of the increased violence in Iraq is the enemy's desire to break America's resolve.
"The terrorists are trying to divide America and break our will, and we must not allow them to succeed . . . ," Bush said.
"Retreating from Iraq would allow the terrorists to gain a new safe haven from which to launch new attacks on America. Retreating from Iraq would dishonor the men and women who have given their lives in that country, and mean their sacrifice has been in vain. And retreating from Iraq would embolden the terrorists, and make our country, our friends, and our allies more vulnerable to new attacks."
This guy is amazing.
