Ex-advisers offer revised Iraq plans
It will be informative in the extreme to see who votes for the Bush plan after being informed, in no uncertain terms, that it is very doubtful it will work.
Those who do so, ought to be horse-whipped on the National Mall!
Ex-advisers offer revised Iraq plans - Yahoo! News:
"WASHINGTON - President Carter's national security adviser said Thursday the Iraq war was likely to lead to 'a head-on conflict' with Iran and other parts of the Muslim world.
Zbigniew Brzezinski also told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that Bush administration policy was driven by 'imperial hubris' and has proved to be a disaster on historic, strategic and moral grounds.
'If the United States continues to be bogged down in a protracted bloody involvement in Iraq, and I emphasize what I am about to say, the final destination on this downhill track is likely to be a head-on conflict with Iran and with much of the world of Islam at large,' Brzezinski said.
Brent Scowcroft, national security adviser to Presidents Ford and George H.W. Bush, said a buildup of U.S. troops in Iraq 'might be a positive blip' if it helped stabilize Baghdad. But he said it would not lead to fundamental changes in the situation.
'It is a tactic, not a strategy,' he said.
