Downing Street Memo: Whack a "grudge match" for Bush 

It would be nice of someone would ask Scott "Sucker MC" McClellan about is, if only to watch him squirm:

In one of the memos, British Foreign Office political director Peter Ricketts openly asks whether the Bush administration had a clear and compelling military reason for war.

"U.S. scrambling to establish a link between Iraq and al-Qaida is so far frankly unconvincing," Ricketts says in the memo. "For Iraq, `regime change' does not stack up. It sounds like a grudge between Bush and Saddam."
(via AP)

Man, if Bush is going to use the troops in a grudge match ("He tried to kill my Dad"), then the least he could do is make sure they are enough of them, that they're armored, that they get paid, and that there's a plan to win the peace. But n-o-o-o-o-o!

NOTE Clearly , Whack is yet another case of Winger Projection Syndrome (back). After all, George "Mano a mano" Bush Junior has been possessed by rage against George Bush Senior for a long time.

We all know Bush likes to keep it simple. But Iraq is complex.

As in Oedipus complex.

Not that this wasn't already a story back in Septemer 2004, though in the Daily Telegraph, not the Times (here) Looks like the DSM is finally shaking loose a story the American press couldn't bring themselves to touch before Election 2004? I wonder why?

NOTE Here's the quote, from the Sidney Morning Herald of September 27 2002:

Saddam tried to kill my dad, says Bush
But there's no doubt his hatred is mainly directed at us," Bush said at a political fundraiser in Houston, Texas. "After all this is the guy who tried to kill my dad."
