Bush Wants 58 Bases in Iraq

The Bush Administration is pushing for the Iraqi Government to sign a treaty that will not be called a treaty. The Bush Administration does not want to call it a treaty because than it would have to go to the U.S. Senate for ratification. This treaty is being taken up by the Iraqi Parliament for ratification but as with everything the Bush Administration has done throughout their tenure, they are trying to circumvent U.S. law by parsing words within the treaty so that they can argue that it is not a treaty, and therefore does not have to go to the U.S. Senate for ratification.

This treaty would enable the U.S. Government to keep 58 permanent bases in Iraq and would pledge defensive help from the U.S. to the Iraqi Government. 58 United States Bases, think about this. Are there 58 U.S. Military Bases in the Continental United States? Why would the U.s. need 58 permanent bases in Iraq. Wasn't it the presence of U.S. Military bases in the Middle East that was cited as being one of the reasons for the attack on the U.S. on 9/11?

Are the American People aware of the Bush Administration Plan to permanently tie the Nation to the defense of Iraq? Are the American People prepared to continue to spend the blood of their Military and the Treasure of their Nation on the Bush fiasco in Iraq indefinitely.
