I'm against the war for exactly the same reason that Bush's military advisors are: it's tactically stupid.
I also wonder why (suddenly) Osama isn't a hot target any longer. The man's a far greater danger than Hussein, but we drive him underground and
then ignore him after a bit -- while his organization emerges again and again to hit targets in other countries. Bush apparently cares only as long
as it's the US. His "global action against terrorism" gets dropped when the targets are in Bali and it's Australian citizens and the Balinese who
are getting killed.
But he was a poor leader as governor of Texas, and this is just more proof of his ineffective, attention-deficit style of leadership. A good leader
would have focused on the target, built a world coalition, and gone after OBL and AlQaida wherever they reared their heads. A good leader wouldn't
have said "Okay! That's over! Now who else can I hit?"
As most know, I've got a real flesh-and-blood stake here, with over 8 family members and close friends in the military services and all but one
(who's on medical leave because of broken bones) on the front lines in either Korea or the Middle East. I know some things about the situations
there and how dangerous it is. And I know that the Bush family relatives aren't risking their necks for this country like MY family is.
The man just has his own scatterbrained agenda and is not listening to what his most experienced advisors are saying.
