Bush calls end to ‘major combat’

Bush still is pushing for an Iraq 9/11 link even though the September 11 commission says that there is no link.  I bet Bush will have the commission executed.

War is over

“Operation Iraqi Freedom was carried out with a combination of precision, speed and boldness the enemy did not expect,” President Bush said Thursday night.

President Bush flying in the co-pilot’s seat of a Navy S-3B Viking made a tailhook landing on the USS Abraham Lincoln, President Bush announced in a nationally televised address that “major combat operations in Iraq have ended.”

“In this battle, we have fought for the cause of liberty, and for the peace of the world. Our nation and our coalition are proud of this accomplishment,” Bush told the Navy men and women aboard the warship Thursday. (Transcript)

Bush also made a direct connection between the war in Iraq and the continuing war on terrorism.

“The battle of Iraq is one victory in a war on terror that began on September 11, 2001, and still goes on,” Bush said. He then highlighted successes in Afghanistan, citing the construction of roads, hospitals and schools.
