What do you think?

I just finished reading Orson Scott Card's latest column; in which he writes a lengthy analysis in support of maintaining Bush's strategy in the "War on Terror."

While I have trouble with his portrayal of Bush as a wise, moderate leader; I don't know what to make of his analysis of the political situation in the Middle East.

Anybody else want to weigh in?

I haven't read it.


Bush is not the brightest candle on the cake. He does not have appeal. He does not have charisma. He does not usually sound like he knows what he's talking about. He has been caught with his pants down a number of times.

In short, he has mired the USA in a situation which has no discernable good outcome. They are not winning a war in Iraq, yet if they pull out Iraq will collapse in chaos, leaving it ripe for the picking of Iran or other nations. This would put the oil cartel under a hostile nation's control. They can't have that.

IF THEY WOULD ONLY PUT 1/10 OF THEIR MILITARY BUDGET INTO ALTERNATIVE ENERGY RESEARCH they could forget about needing to rule the oil-rich nations and get on with fixing their own problems. Bush won't back down though, and doesn't seem interested in anything alternative.

I can't believe they elected him once, let alone twice...
