Iraq disintegrating...but fear not, Bush will give a speech

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

The situation in Iraq is getting worse by the day. The concern is growing stronger among our allies:

The administration has come under growing pressure at home and abroad over the past two weeks, with dire warnings from Arab allies and a prominent international group about the looming disintegration of Iraq. In an unusual public rebuke of U.S. policy, Saudi Arabia's foreign minister called a news conference in Washington last week to predict Iraq's dissolution. He said there is no leadership or momentum to pull Iraq's Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds back together and prevent a civil war. Other countries have expressed similar concerns in private, according to U.S. and Arab diplomats.
Dire warnings. No leadership or momentum. That's so frightening. So what's the Bush plan? Another public relations offensive:
In a push to boost public support for his Iraq policy, Bush will give a speech on Oct. 6. Vice President Cheney and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice also will give major foreign policy addresses over the next week.
Yes, they're going to give more speeches. Their incompetence would be pathetic if it wasn't killing so many people.
