So the official start of the war has been pushed back to mid-March. President Bush, who won’t get any credit for doing so, spent about a month’s worth of prime fighting time in order to give the UN a chance to step up to the plate. Another month and our forces won’t move on Iraq until April, which is when temperatures begin to climb in the Gulf. Military spokesmen say our ability to fight then will be “needlessly degraded”.
That must be how Bush feels–needlessly degraded.
