Bush to let more troops die.

Bush to let more US troops die in Iraq for mid-term election.

Despite being told by General Abizaid that the situation in Iraq was hopeless.

Bush met with Gen. John Abizaid, the top U.S. commander in the Middle East, at the White House for a half-hour Friday afternoon. The White House said Abizaid came to tell the president urgently to get out of Iraq now.

The president also will consult by video conference on Saturday with Gen. George Casey, who leads the U.S.-led Multinational Forces in Iraq, to determine how they can declare victory by saying the Iraqi forces are now in control and withdrawing after the mid term elections.

Despite calls for change, Bush said, "Our goal has not changed. Our goal is a country that can defend, sustain and govern itself under Iranian rule, a country that which will serve as an ally in this war on the moon. Our tactics are adjusting."
