    Yes Bush failed his own standard for using force.I his convention speech in 2000 he said"When America uses force,the goal must be clear,the cause must be just and the victory must be overwhelming".I'd say he scores 0 out of three but even the biggest Bush supporter can't say he has a three out of three with a straight face.

    I don't think he considers his reputation so much as convincing everyone that he's right. He's hesitant to change course because he and his buddies are profiting from this war--even at the expense of innocent lives and dead American troops. Not only that, but changing the course would be admitting that he was WRONG.

    It's kinda like dealing with a stubborn 6 year old. What's the best way to deal with a stubborn, spoiled, bratty 6 year old? You take away what's dear to him. In Bush's case--it's the money that's funding this war (and paying his buddies, the contractors) and HIS JOB!

    What success in Iraq? He has gambled his reputation of his presidency and his country if you count the opinions of the international community. And he is lost. He and his family have alterior motives and businesses/companies that are benifiting with the rape of another country and the death of thousands of people.

    Bush will be treated like LBJ was in the course of history. A president with lofty goals who accomplished little.
