Bush's Crisis: A Steady Course to the Rocks

Issue section: 

Alexander Cockburn explains how domestic opposition to Bush's war on Iraq is beginning to bite.

The panic stems from the core concern of every politician in the nation's capital-survival.

Technically, it's the summer's end... But realistically, we have at least another month of stifling heat ahead of us. It's almost mid-September and the weather is still hot and dry in Baghdad. There are a few precious hours in the very early morning when the sun seems almost kind. If you wake early enough, you can catch a solid hour of light breezes and a certain summer coolness.
