Coalition Of The Un-Willing

Bush has announced that the U.S. will continue to finance Iraq's attempts to construct a "Bushian" Xanadu even though more coalition partners are announcing pullouts. Bush made the announcement during a press conference with Ukranian President Viktor Yushchenko, who is planning to pull out all of his Ukranian forces by Fall 2005. Yushchenko is making the move fulfilling one of his campaign promises. This is a far cry from Bush who has a tendency of promising one thing and doing something completely different.

It has now been two years since Bush toppled Saddam Hussein and began his occupation of Iraq. Since that time dozens of nations from the so-called "coalition of the willing" have pulled their forces from Iraq. Much of this pullout has been due largely to either the dangers faced by coalition forces or a sudden awareness that Bush has no idea what he's doing there and has no idea how to get out. Can it be only a matter of time before more Americans join those ranks and begin dropping their support for the Iraq debacle? The Peach hopes it's sooner rather than later.
