I saw Bush's speach marching us ever closer to war.
While the president is getting a great deal of criticism in all the blogs by arm chair presidents, the thing most of us miss is the fact that the present crisis has been in the making for decades. Conflict with Iraq has only been on the forefront of bloggers' minds for a few weeks. The problems of a rogue nation that is aggressively building weapons and torturing its people has been building for decades. Regardless of the White House's time frame, we the blogging public wouldn't think much about the conflict until days and weeks before the end of the ultimatum.
On the downside, I cannot help but feel that the ex oil man Bush is blinding by black gold and the love of cheap fuel. Things are not good in this great big world of ours. I simply hope that freedom survives the threats of the Islamic fundamentalism and the homeland security forces raised to fight terrorism.
