RE: Bush will try to bullshit his way out of his record of failure again tonight
We could get into a good discussion of the subject of deductive logic here, something our prez seemed very short of. What the hell did they think would happen after placing a 140,000 Christians troops smack dab in middle of the Muslim heartland - troops who are killing civilians under the heading of "mistakes happen in war", for chrissakes ?
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
