Military Planners Tell Bush Iraq War ´Cannot be Won´
By Staff and Wire Reports
Aug 5, 2005, 05:51

With American deaths climbing and public support falling, President Bush stubbornly says the U.S. will "stay the course" and American troops will remain in the dangerous, war-ravaged country, fighting a war that many military experts say cannot be won.

An AP-Ipsos poll taken early this week showed public support of Bush´s handling of the war had dropped to 38 percent, the lowest since Bush ordered the U.S. - led invasion of Iraq.

But Bush, facing a grim and growing death toll, also said new threats of even more violence from al-Qaida´s second-in-command would not intimidate the United States into retreat.

Yet while Bush remains stubbornly committed to the war, sources within the Pentagon say military planners tell the President the war cannot be won and the U.S. may have to look for a Vietnam-style withdrawal that will leave Iraq vulnerable to forces even more dangerous than the previous dictatorship of Saddam Hussein.

"Our present scenarios do not provide a successful outcome," admits a senior military planner. "We are not adequately equipped to prevail in this conflict."

Still, there has been few obvious signs of progress in U.S.-led efforts to defeat the insurgency and to improve the Iraqi army and police so they can take over security responsibilities and allow the U.S. forces to leave.

And while the military tries to keep an optimistic public face the story told behind the scenes at the Pentagon is far less rosy.

"We´re losing and we have no contingency plan in place to turn this conflict around," the senior military planner said. "At the present time, we are engaged in a no-win scenario."

The high recent death toll of American troops have dominated the news back home -- no help for the already-eroding public support for Bush´s Iraq policy.

The AP-Ipsos poll found that only 38 percent of Americans approve of Bush´s handling of Iraq, the low point so far. A year ago, the public was evenly divided on Iraq, and confidence in Bush´s stance on the war and terrorism helped him to election victory.

Deborah´s Note: Aside from helping George W. Bush to election victory, from what I´ve read another motivation for having a war against Iraq is because Saddam Hussein wanted to be paid for the oil in Euros instead of U.S. dollars. From what I´ve read the Euro is worth about 30 cents more than the U.S. dollar. So ultimately because the U.S.A. didn´t get the business deal desired by the powers that be about 100,000 Iraqis and about 10,000 American soldiers have been robbed of their lives. So many thousands more people have been injured and even disabled.

The idea is not to win it, but to cause a much chaos as needed through it. Via the chaos, the order will come, and the freedom and liberty they promise will be enforced at the point of a gun. This war will allow the army to drop its traditional role of fighting the foreign threats only, while keeping out of domestic issues, to now by the powers in the patriot acts, have the jurisdiction to focus on attacking the enemies of the state, both foreign and domestic. This will be a two fronted war, and we know what happens to those who fight on two frontsflush:dubya:
