Mission still not accomplished

Four years ago Tuesday, George W. Bush stood proudly aboard an aircraft carrier in the Gulf for a taxpayer-funded photo-op, where he puffed himself up like a toad and croaked the words "mission accomplished".

Guess what, Georgie-boy?

Not only is the mission still not accomplished, but things in Iraq are even worse now than before you impetuously invaded the sovereign country on a slew of bogus justifications. And there's little chance that the situation will improve so long as we continue our occupation there.

Normally I'd take a bit of pleasure in seeing an idiot like Bush being proven wrong, but there is no joy in the knowledge that over 3,000 Americans and countless Iraqis are now dead because of the Boy Chimp's blatant stupidity. And the prospects of many more needlessly dying will be ensured when Bush vetoes the funding bill that has a deadline for withdrawal attached.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer has a .PDF file (click here) that examines Bush's hollow words that day.

And The Raw Story (photo credit above) covers the demonstration above with more photos from in front of the White House.

May Day is traditionally a day to celebrate life, renewal, and the wondrous cycles of nature.

But for the past four years, it only serves to remind us of George Bush's tragic failure of leadership.
