How to protect U.S. troops

Mar 17, 2003

Any further delay in invading Iraq will result in much higher casualties to U.S. troops – so says the Bush administration.

No – what endangers the troops IS the invasion itself. So if Bush wants to protect them – as he says he does – he would quash plans for the invasion. He would bring the troops home now.

But the only thing Bush is trying to protect are the interests of the big corporations who want this war. That's why he's signing the orders and putting the troops in harm's way.
