asking for alternatives?

It's very odd that de facto President George W. "Iraq" Bush insists that critics of his Iraq surge plan offer alternatives. Two points.

First, as our not-so-dear leader has repeatedly pointed out over the past eternity I mean six years, HE is the Commander-in-Chief. (He likes that title so much that he even insisted that the head of US military commands stop calling themselves CINC, or Commander in Chief.) It is the Commander-in-Chief, and his generals, who are responsible for such military decisions. Not members of Congress, the media, or the public.

And second -- since when has Bush ever listened to what anybody ever told him anyway? Hell, most recently he even ignored the advice of his own generals in deciding to "surge" in Iraq. Why should anybody waste any time considering an alternative?

He listened to Cheney and Rummy. And don't forget Chalabi.
