I glanced through Bush's op-ed in the WSJ and I can't say that is great writing and for fiction it doesn't have much of a plot. Truthfully, I think he reached his journalistic Peter Principle point with this little piece. These attempts by his handlers to make him some kind of intellectual are getting embarrassing.
Finally a little reality from the Neocon cabal. This from Dan Fromkin's White House Briefing:
Meanwhile, the intellectual architect of the “surge”, Frederick W. Kagan, admits to the Journal: “If we surge and it doesn’t work, it’s hard to imagine what we do after that.”I can tell you right now Fred that it is not going to work unless you "surge" with 200,000 troops and then it will be a close one. Why don't you just admit that you are desperate and this is just a feeble PR stunt to show resolve.
No idea if I'll have my broadband working when I get home and if not it will be posting from the Blackberry again which is sub-optimal to say the least.
See you guys on the flip side.
