Is there anything left of the SOTUS address that's credible?
When I saw that the neoconservative response to 9/11 was to turn a war against stateless terrorism into military attacks on Muslim states, I realized that the Bush administration was committing a strategic blunder with open-ended disastrous consequences for the US that, in the end, would destroy Bush, the Republican Party, and the conservative movement.
There's far more too. A damn good read.
President G. W. Bush proposes an eternal crusade under the guise of fighting a tactic. You cannot successfully wage war on a tactic and simultaneously fertilize the soil in which it grows. To defeat the tactic of terror we must starve it of the injustice on which it feeds.
