<![CDATA[Bush vows to ‘stay in the fight’ in Iraq – Yahoo! News:

U.S. President George W. Bush vowed on Saturday “we will stay in the fight” until victory in Iraq, rejected critics’ calls for a troop pullout timetable and insisted progress is being made in Baghdad.

If the President would commit to re-enlist in the Air Force after his term in office expires (better yet, just step down now and do it), this might be morally convincing and in some way a response to critics of his policy that demonstrates he really believes in his policy. But just saying “I’m going to commit to sending men and women to die as long as it takes” is hardly a viable response to criticism of the war.

Actually, someone who believed in this war would encourage their two daughters, Jenna and Barbara, to enlist and show that a shared national sacrifice was in order and that others should sign up, too, so the $4 billion recruiting budget could be shaved.
