“If America pulls out of Iraq, they will fail in Afghanistan,” Mam Rostam said.
Hardly anyone in Congress seems to consider that the Taliban insurgency in Afghanistan might become much more severe if similar tactics are proven effective in Iraq.
“And they will fail with Iran,” he continued. “They will fail everywhere with all Eastern countries. The war between America and the terrorists will move from Iraq and Afghanistan to America itself. Do you think America will do that? The terrorists gather their agents in Afghanistan and Iraq and fight the Americans here. If you pull back, the terrorists will follow you there. They will try, at least. Then Iran will be the power in the Middle East. Iran is the biggest supporter of terrorism. They support Hezbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Ansar Al Islam. You know what Iran will do with those elements if America goes away.”

The US Democratic Party controls the US Congress, and is determined to use that control to destroy George W. Bush politically, beyond any hope of "rehabilitation." Apparently, the Bush Hatred goes so deep in the Democratic Party and its financial backers, that the Party leaders are willing to trigger a series of much greater catastrophes than the Iraq war, in order to destroy Bush.
The Democrats would like to see Bush impeached, but they are in no position to accomplish that feat. If they were honest, they would admit that only an assassination of the US President would make them happy. What they are left with in the end, is a strong personal and political need to destroy the legacy of Bush so completely, that even if in 20 or 30 years it is seen that much of Bush's overall strategy was sound, no one will ever know. Controlling history in order to control the future. It is the way despotic political cabals work.
Very sad to see a major political party in the United States placing itself in that position willingly.
