Another unwanted milestone in Iraq
Another unwanted milestone passed yesterday in Iraq, as more US citizens have been killed in Iraq than were killed in the September 11th attacks. There simply seems to be no end to the situation in Iraq and as Bush's - and the Republican Party's - support wanes in the run-up to the mid-terms, one can only see pressure intensifying on the US position there. And as a rallying call for Islamic militants around the world, Iraq has been the best possible servant to their cause. Whilst many Republicans and many supporters of the Bush administration will still see the cause as being just and true, one can only imagine that history will not be kind to George W Bush.
