Neo-cons question Bush's democratisation strategy
Well, this is rich!
Remember those pointy-headed Liberals we have heard about non-stop for the last 40 years. Well, heads up, because they are, now, the NeoCons and they are not just Republicans.
They will go with whichever political party they think will do the best job of keeping us in eternal war, and keeping the masses from becoming too restless.
Junior flopped big time.
Somehow, I don't think they, the NeoCons, counted on Georgie getting it into his head that he was some kind of new Messiah figure and that God talks to him.
The egg-heads of today are the ones who got us into this mess. Not one of them has gone anywhere, really. They are all still skulking about the halls of power here and in other countires, hanging out at 'think tanks,' none of which is known for the common sense to be found there.
Common sense truths just escape them. Like, just maybe, a guy who drank alcohol addictively and did some fairly serious drugs until he was forty, could not even manage to complete his TAG duty in a responsible fashion, ran every company he ever had any real control over into the dirt and had to be bailed out, again and again, may not be your best choice for Leader of the free world. even in the best of times, let alone now.
The very definition of a true egg-head ^
Democracy at gun point. Give the gun to the guy who runs the biggest risk of full-blown bipolar disorder, and who is going to be under incredible preasure; then, while you about your eggheaded business, give the ammo to a man who is at biggest risk for paranoid ideation and, apparently, shooting people in the face.
Oh, yeah, you eggheads are really good. Here we are, on the eve of destruction....why? For what? More money? Your perfect, but perfectly untested, pet theories, turned to hardened ideology? What? Why?
Damn you eggheads are good. You guys had us all thinking that Osama bin Laden is the most dangerous man on Earth, or is that, now, Zarqawi.
Can't keep up.
I can remember when Tim Leary was the most dangerous man on Earth.
Ah, the good old days....
FT.com / Home US - Neo-cons question Bush�s democratisation strategy:
Addressing military cadets graduating from West Point, Mr Bush reaffirmed at the weekend that the US 'will not rest until the promise of liberty reaches every people in every nation'.
But as the US struggles to assert itself on the international stage, the president's most radical supporters now dismiss this as mere rhetoric, and traditional conservatives are questioning the wisdom of a democratisation strategy that has brought unpleasant consequences in the Middle East.
Administration officials speak privately of a sense of fatigue over the worsening crisis in Iraq that has drained energy from other important policy issues. Senior officials are leaving, not so unusual in a second term, but still giving the sense of a sinking ship run in some quarters by relatively inexperienced crew. (Read On ^)
