Bush Says One Thing, Does Another

From the Associated Press, we got this gem:

MONTEBELLO, Canada - President Bush acknowledged frustration with the troubled government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki on Tuesday but said it’s up to the Iraqi people to decide whether to continue supporting him.

Indeed. And had it been the Iraqi people's decision, they wouldn't have chosen a war --destroying their infrastructure (water and electrical service is still spotty after all this time),
--an insurgency/cum civil war,
--a nation occupying them against their will,
--lost over 600,000 civillians (according to both Lancet and Johns Hopkins University),
--have internal refugees numbering about 2 million,
--had 2 million refugees flee to neighboring countries (which are strained as they absorb them),
--wouldn't have lived through a war --based upon lies,
--and for no just cause.

Or has Bush forgotten all that? Now, he cares about what the people want? I don't think so.
