WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- President Bush said Friday that Iraq faces a "moment of choosing" in the aftermath of the bombing of a major Shiite Muslim shrine and urged Iraqis to stay on the path of democracy.
In a speech to an American Legion gathering, Bush hailed Iraq's revered Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani for working to urge restraint and calm after the bombing Wednesday raised fears of outright civil war.
"This is a moment of choosing for the Iraqi people," said Bush, who spoke after attending a National Security Council meeting at the White House devoted to Iraq.
"We can expect the coming days will be intense. Iraq remains a serious situation, but I'm optimistic, because the Iraqi people have spoken" their desire for democracy through elections, he said.
Have we ever haa a president less willing to face the reality of the mess he's created? From shooting people in the face to Katrina, Bush is all slogans and greed and no action.
Iraq is about to explode and Bush talks about elections?
We're days from seeing Iraq collapse into civil war and he wants to talk about a vote? Voting created this mess. It isn't going to solve this.
Bubble? Try fantasyland.
Because in ths world, Iraq is a lost cause.
