Best graf was aimed at detractors:
I also want to speak to those of you who did not support my decision to send troops to Iraq: I have heard your disagreement, and I know how deeply it is felt. Yet now there are only two options before our country - victory or defeat. And the need for victory is larger than any president or political party, because the security of our people is in the balance. I do not expect you to support everything I do, but tonight I have a request: Do not give in to despair, and do not give up on this fight for freedom.
"Yet now there are only two options before our country - victory or defeat."
An example of the logical fallacy of "undistributed middle" or "false dilemma". See: http://www.nizkor.org/features/fallacies/
Actually, there are a wide range of options, and is pulling out tomorrow to really be considered "defeat"? After all, we accomplished the mission of getting rid of Saddam. Bush is still muddled. I have been asking publically what they mean by "victory" I have not recieved one answer yet.
One thing is certain, waving a purple finger in the air only means that Bush has been sitting in the Oval Office inkwell again.
