Bush says that if the US pulls out of Iraq, International Terrorist might plot new attacks against the US.
In logic that is not exactly clear, Bush outlines a rationalization for continued a US combat military presence in Iraq.
Bush’s new cause for the US jihad is based upon his belief that international terrorists could, maybe, might possibly consider, or, plot new attacks on America. This announcement came during a meeting with Iraq’s interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi.
"I think we will need more troops than we currently have" Abizaid said. And this same sentiment was echoed by Gen. John Abizaid, commander of U.S. troops in the Middle East. Allawi and Bush will not be asking the UN for additional troops as the UN has stated this is an illegal war and Bush has committed the US to going it alone.
