Why are you so resistant to that idea, and how much longer are you willing to give the surge to work before considering a change in this policy? BUSH: First of all, I understand why the American people are — you know, they’re tired of the war. People are — there’s war fatigue in America. It’s affecting our psychology. I’ve said this before. I understand that. This is an ugly war. It’s a war in which an enemy will kill innocent men, women and children in order to achieve a political objective. It doesn’t surprise me that there is deep concern amongst our people."war fatigue"? christ. of all people, George W. Bush is in no position to paint a picture of the American people as incapable of coming to a rational conclusion about the fiasco in Iraq. "war fatigue"? christ. of all people, GWB is in no position to psychologize the American people and claim they are incapable of using rational thought to draw conclusions about the fiasco in Iraq.
