Bush’s incompetence would be hilarious if it wasn’t so dangerous.
The latest terrible decision revolve around the Kurds, the “Other Iraq,” the independence of which is one of the greatest successes of the Iraq War. President Bush and his dangerous, deluded advisors are doing their best to destroy that success too.

George Bush was the right man in the 2004 election because of his two picks for the Supreme Court, John Roberts and Samuel Alito. Foreign policy wise, it is now clear that John Kerry would have been a better pick. For that matter, nearly anyone would have been a better pick.
An immediate (by the end of February) withdrawal from Iraq would be better than the current policy. An immediate (by the end of February) attack on Iran would be better than the current policy. Bush’s current policy of attacking our friends and appeasing our enemies is one of the the worst policies imaginable. Bush, after winning the Iraq War, is doing all he can to lose it.
