George W. Bush and Dick Cheney are determined to secure another $100 billion blank check for the Iraq War despite a growing consensus among intelligence and military analysts that the war strategy is in chaos and on course to gravely damage U.S. interests in the Middle East.

Having solidified support among congressional Republicans and still backed by a powerful right-wing news media, Bush and Cheney appear to have concluded that they can force congressional Democrats to back down over legislative language seeking a phased withdrawal from Iraq.

Questions for Mr. Parry:

While you suggest that Mr. Bush and Mr. Bin Laden have overlapping goals, you fail to differentiate their long-term goals for the Mideast.

What are Bin Laden's and Zawahiri's and al Qaeda's long-term goals in the Mideast?

What are Bush's long-term goals in teh Mideast?

There is much data to suggest that their goals in the long run are quite different.
