I'm glad I wasn't at that protest standing by you.

You must have missed this:

Quote:
WASHINGTON — A commission formed to assess the Iraq war and recommend a new course has ruled out the prospect of victory for America, according to draft policy options shared with The New York Sun by commission officials.

Currently, the 10-member commission — headed by a secretary of state for President George H.W. Bush, James Baker — is considering two option papers, "Stability First" and "Redeploy and Contain," both of which rule out any prospect of making Iraq a stable democracy in the near term.

...

Instead, the commission is headed toward presenting President Bush with two clear policy choices that contradict his rhetoric of establishing democracy in Iraq. The more palatable of the two choices for the White House, "Stability First," argues that the military should focus on stabilizing Baghdad while the American Embassy should work toward political accommodation with insurgents. The goal of nurturing a democracy in Iraq is dropped.
What a clusterfuck.

The virus wasn't contagious. I only mentioned the virus to show how strongly I opposed the invasion. It was tough going to that thing with a virus.

It's not there. They've got a chaotic theocracy. Women are getting harrassed for working, for driving, and for leaving the house without a male relative. This is the way life is in Afghanistan, where the Taliban is making a comeback as many of the warlords in that country are running vast areas of territory are Taliban sympathizers.

Just out of curiousity, is there any concievable way, hypothetically speaking, that congress could somehow go over the president's head to end a war like this?

Yes. They could cut off funding.
