Bush yesterday

[. . .]

Now, I would call the results mixed in terms of standing up Iraqi units who are willing to fight. There have been some cases where when the heat got on, they left the battlefield. That's unacceptable. Iraq will never secure itself if they have troops that, when the heat gets on, they leave the battlefield. I fully understand that. On the other hand, there were some really fine units in Fallujah, for example, in Najaf, that did their duty. [my emphasis]

[. . .]


Unacceptable? They had a good role model, didn't they? Bush never let himself get near the battlefield 35 years ago (neither did Rummy and Dick) and he left early too. Fucking asshole.
