Bush vetoes troop withdrawal bill

Associated Press

WASHINGTON - President Bush vetoed legislation to pull U.S. troops out of Iraq Tuesday night in a historic showdown with Congress over whether the unpopular and costly war should end or escalate.

In only the second veto of his presidency, Bush rejected legislation that would require the first U.S. combat troops to be withdrawn from Iraq by Oct. 1 with a goal of a complete pullout six months later.

"This is a prescription for chaos and confusion and we must not impose it on our troops," Bush said in a nationally broadcast statement from the White House. He said the bill would "mandate a rigid and artificial deadline" for troop pullouts, and "it makes no sense to tell the enemy when you plan to start withdrawing."

Well, he does sorta have a point about the whole not telling your enemy when you're leaving thing, but then again, what with the whole war being broadcast live while it was happening, i'd say that argument gets thrown out the window. however, on another note, i seem to remember reading somewhere, that, while bush was expected to do what he's done, he also said he wasn't going to commit more troops to iraq. or something.

It's worth noting that Bush vetoed this on the 4 year anniversary of his infamous "Mission Accomplished" speech on that airfract carrier.

"... must not impose it on our troops."

Impose what again? I mean, what's so confusing and chaotic about going home?

Good one, Dubya.
