ABSTRACT
The article presents an essay on why United States President George W. Bush should involve more U.S. citizens in the Iraq War. Bush has been criticized for his handling of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. The author suggests that liberals have used the Iraqi insurgency and the rising number of war victims to criticize Bush's handling of the war. It is suggested that the Democratic Party has refused to acknowledge the achievements of the U.S. in Iraq for political reasons.
