President Bush's foreign policy is expected to come under attack this week from a group of former military commanders and diplomats.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The State Department said it will be receptive to a critical statement from a group of former high-level diplomatic and military officials who are expected to condemn the Bush administration's foreign policy and to assert that it has harmed national security.


Calling themselves Diplomats and Military Commanders for Change, the signers include former senior military commanders and 20 former U.S. ambassadors, many of whom were appointed or served in Republican administrations.


See? It's pretty much everyone who thinks he's completely screwed the pooch...

The problem is that pretty much everyone can't give anything time. These days everything has to be immediate, especially for people in our country. Fad diets, energy pills, you name it. It seems to me that everyone thinks that anything you have to wait for isn't worth their time. Give Iraq some time and it can work. Contrary to popular belief, no one can construct a working government overnight.

Yes, let's remember how well holding out in Viet Nam did for us all. Good point!
