Critical time for Iraq says Bush May 24, 2007

It’s not the first time we’ve heard this…

US President George W Bush has warned that the coming weeks and months will be critical for the success of the new security strategy for Iraq.

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Mr Bush said the last of the US troop reinforcements would arrive in Baghdad by the middle of June.

He said he expected heavy fighting to continue in Iraq during this time.

How Bush expects 21,000 more troops to magically fix the problems in Iraq remains a mystery. It’ll be interesting to watch.

Mr Bush hailed the compromise reached with the Democrat-controlled Congress to fund the war without conditions.

That’ll be US taxpayers throwing a few more $bn’s away…
