Jimmy Carter was just saying what most intelligent Americans are thinking:
In the newspaper interview, Carter said Bush had taken a "radical departure from all previous administration policies" with the Iraq war.My question for the Bushies might be ask to millions of Africans "How irrelevant do you think Jimmy Carter is?" You might focus the question on all those who have escaped Guinea Worm, River Blindness and Trachoma because he is so irrelevant. You might also ask the millions sleeping under insecticide treated mosquito nets tonight and protected from malaria carrying mosquitoes how irrelevant he his or the thousands and thousands in Africa who now have toilets. Hell, you don't even have to go to Africa. Just ask all the people living in Habitat for Humanity homes how irrelevant Jimmy Carter is.
"We now have endorsed the concept of pre-emptive war where we go to war with another nation militarily, even though our own security is not directly threatened, if we want to change the regime there or if we fear that some time in the future our security might be endangered," Carter said.
Another question that needs to be asked of the leading Democrats in this country is why they are not out defending Jimmy Carter? Well, this is one Democrat that is defending Jimmy Carter. He is absolutely right on this, the Israelis and just about anything else he speaks upon.
Then again maybe George Bush can ponder irrelevancy while he is waiting for his Nobel Prize.
