'Bring Them On,' Bush Says to Iraq Attacks

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush on Wednesday challenged militants who have been killing and injuring U.S. forces in Iraq, saying "bring them on" because American forces were tough enough to deal with their attacks.
"There are some who feel like that conditions are such that they can attack us there," Bush told reporters at the White House. "My answer is bring them on. We have the force necessary to deal with the situation."
In his best Dirty Harry voice, a squinty-eyed Shrub dares the evil doers to make his day. Can't wait for the Toby Keith song this inspires.
It is hard to top Digby on this one:
Oooh. Time to hose down all those panting Bush fans again. You know how they get when Commander Codpiece gets all manly 'n shit. Especially when he's inviting attacks on American soldiers. That is so cool. I bet it skeers all those cowardly lil' Arabs half to death to hear a big tuff Murikan prezdunt call 'em out like that. It reminds me of when he drunkenly drove up on the front lawn of the family home and challenged his father to fight him "mano a mano." That's what real men --- cowboys --- do.
