The war in Iraq is the beginning of the end. Some might call it the beginning of the beginning. As Patrick Buchanan stated in his great book “Where the right went wrong” – “The Bush Doctrine of preemptive war is a recipe for permanent war to ensure our security”. I believe this to be true and I will state it now and look back on this entry someday and tell the world “I told you so”. I recommend the book but for those with less time, start with a flashback to September 2, 2002 and Buchanan’s discussion of the Cheney doctrine. I really wouldn’t call it that though. I would look at the presidents hawkish cabinet and point my finger to most of his top officials and call it the Bush Doctrine of Death and Deceit – Our country’s policy to destroy our best and brightest in the name of saving us all.
