Would that ours wasn't forced to crumble along with it!

Leading today's LA Times, a story of the 20+ former Senior Military Officials and High-Level Diplomats, many of whom served under and/or were appointed by both Reagan and Bush Sr. who will be issuing an unusual public statement this week calling for the Removal of George W. Bush from office. The group, which includes, among many others, the Admiral who was Reagan's own Joint Chief of Staff, charge that Bush's Foreign Policy; years of cooperation with important allies tossed aside and the diversion of resources from the "War on Terror" to the War on Iraq, have made the United States less secure:

A group of 26 former senior diplomats and military officials, several appointed to key positions by Republican Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, plans to issue a joint statement this week arguing that President George W. Bush has damaged America's national security and should be defeated in November.

The group, which calls itself Diplomats and Military Commanders for Change, will explicitly condemn Bush's foreign policy, according to several of those who signed the document.

"It is clear that the statement calls for the defeat of the administration," said William C. Harrop, the ambassador to Israel under President Bush's father and one of the group's principal organizers.

Nowhere to turn. But Rush...well, maybe Sean is now in a better place to make the case for George W. Bush. But it don't look good.
