We now get dire warnings from President Bush that violence in Iraq is going to escalate. The article from the Washington Post is quite ludicrous. If we are at the last phase of Iraq’s transition, what comes next? We definitely are seeing a transition, from bad to much worse — and it looks like there is going to be even more downhill progress as the transition occurs. Hell hath no fury like a nation scorned. The Whirlwind Bush marches everyone on, straight into the darkests depths of Dante’s Inferno.
President Bush warned yesterday that the bloodshed and violence by Iraqi extremists will escalate as the country moves into the last phase of its transition over the next three months — beginning with the referendum on a controversial new constitution on Oct. 15.
“We can expect they’ll do everything in their power to try to stop the march of freedom,” Bush warned during comments in the Rose Garden about terrorism.
