Today marks one year that President Bush landed on the deck of the Abraham Lincoln and declared an end to "major combat operations" in my country. Since then, many of his opponents have been criticizing him for this. Some have gone as far as to call it a "blunder."

Despite my differences with the American leader, I feel that such criticism is uncalled for. After all, Mr. Bush has almost as much difficulty with the English language as I do, and perhaps he was just unfamiliar with the meaning of the words "major combat."
