Bush’s escalation of the Iraq war. New cartoon by Mikhaela

Bush's Iraq war escalation, cartoon

This new cartoon by Mikhaela is on the plans to escalate the Iraq war by George W Bush.

Bush does not like opponents of the Iraq war, the majority of people in the USA.

So, he has a domestic spying program against them.

  1. Dear friends,

    Just when we thought the war in Iraq couldn’t get any worse—it has. Last night, President Bush rejected reality, spurned the American people’s verdict, and announced his new policy: military escalation in Iraq.

    The newly elected United States Congress has the power to stop this madness, but it’s critical to show immediate, unified opposition from the international community.

    So MoveOn is helping launch Avaaz, a new international partnership to mobilize progressive global voices. We’re starting with an emergency worldwide petition to the U.S. Congress and a powerful full-page ad in “Roll Call”—the Washington DC newspaper read by every member of Congress and their staff.

    Click below to see the ad and sign the petition:


    After years of failed occupation, it’s clear to everyone but George Bush that the US cannot solve this civil conflict through force. As Bush’s own top military advisors and commanders in the field have said, sending tens of thousands more American troops will only fan the flames of this war.

    World opinion matters: The American people understand the US can’t police the globe by itself. That’s why, before the original invasion, Bush worked so hard to promote the involvement of Tony Blair and a few other select world leaders to win over reluctant members of Congress.

    Today, Bush stands completely alone—but it’s our job to bring this point home in Washington. The ad in Roll Call highlights Tony Blair’s decision to withdraw troops in direct opposition to Bush’s proposed escalation. And the petition will help show where the global public stands.


    The Bush administration is already twisting arms and doing everything it can to push this escalation through. Congress may yet find the courage to resist—if we help them—but there’s no time to lose.

    Add your name to the petition. Spread the word to your friends. The Iraq crisis is a global problem. Together we have the power, and the responsibility, to help change course.

  2. *Does anyone recall that about a year ago …*

    Regarding Bush’s “increase” in troop levels ….

    Does anyone recall that about a year ago, we had the SAME number of
    troops in Iraq Bush wants to “increase” to now?

    Yes, for a short time a year ago (I think it was during the Iraqi
    election) we had 150,000 troops in Iraq … and what good did it do

    What good will it do now?

    The ONLY reason for this elevation in troop levels is to get Bush past
    his exit from office in Jan, 2009 — when it will be another president’s

    Everything — yes, everything — Bush does between now and Jan. 2009 is
    to save his own “legacy.”

    He does not give a damn about the soldiers or achieving what he used to
    call “victory” in Iraq.

    He is just hoping to fool the public into thinking he has a plan. Watch
    to see how many Americans fall for it.

    Bush’s speech was disgusting, pathetic and frightening.

    And the same describes Bush, the person.
