We should correctly understand what is happening right now.
Nobody is blaming President Bush for breaking a fundamental principle of not meddling into the internal affairs of a foreign country and starting a war.
Mr. Bush is condemned for not winning the war. At the moment he launched the war his approval ratings skyrocketed.
That’s the reason why Mr. Bush is willing to start another war, this time against Iran and there is again nobody trying to stop him. Neither Congress nor journalists nor big business are opposed to the White House approach to the Iran crisis.
Mr. Bush launched the Iraq War over nonexistent WMD but he learned a lesson. For that reason Vice President Cheney threatened to launch the Iran War to prevent that country from developing WMD what is a mistake-free approach.
Our Congress isn’t acting pre-emptively to stop the White House. The legislative branch is fully supportive of Bush’s policy.
There is no reason to hurry. There is plenty of time till 2012 to blame the executive branch for failure to win another war.
The alleged showdown between the White House and the Congress over the Iraq War seems to be an electoral gimmick.
The rapid escalation of Iranian crisis indicates there is no difference among them.
The good thing is there is unity between our executive and legislative branches.
The bad thing is they are united over the wrong policy.
Nobody cares about the facts.
How is our military supposed to wage three long-term wars if is already overstretched by waging the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan?
Is the US Congress going to complain later that President Bush mismanaged the Iran War too?
