But he doesn't seem to know who are enemies are. He let Saudis fly on September 12, 2001, when you and I were grounded. He still speaks about a "Religion of Peace." He wants to establish a new Islamic state in the Middle East. In short he would appear not to have a clue.
We all laughed at Carter and Clinton's "nation building," but isn't that exactly what Bush is trying to do with the military in Afghanistan and Iraq. Rush says, and he's right, that the purpose of the military is to kill people and break things. We did that. What are we doing in these places now?
Like others have said, don't play poker with him if you think he is clueless.
Clinton engaged in "nation building" in Haiti. Haiti is on the verge of a revolution. So much for Clinton's "nation building.". There is no guarantee that President Bush will be successful in installing permanently friendly governments in Afghanistan and Iraq. The alternative is to cut and run like the Democrats want him to, and guarantee future disasters. In time the Democrats will probably get their wish. We will retreat to our borders and wait for the final battle. Of course one thing is certain. If Democrats are in power, and that power is threatened, they will use all manner of weapons, nuclear, biological and chemical, and break all manner of international agreements and protocols - to keep that power.
