Bush came across as a kid at the controls. In retrospect I think most people believe there were ways we could have dealt with Iraq and Afghanistan without physically occupying them and carrying out these long drawn out nation building efforts. I think one of the biggest mistakes he made was disbanding Iraq's army and police forces. It took years for us to build these up again from scratch rather than cleaning them up.

Welcome to FR. 'A kid at the controls'? Compared to whom, Barack Hussein Obama? If you're one who believe we shouldn't respond to a major attack on our soil in our enemy's backyard, then your stay here will be an unhappy one. May I suggest the DU, or KOS, or some other site that advocates 'talk' and diplomacy when confronted with aggression? They're more suited to the pantywaists of our society.
