    Quite the prophesier back then...

    “Once you got to Iraq and took it over, and took down Saddam Hussein’s government, then what are you going to put in its place? That’s a very volatile part of the world, and if you take down the central government of Iraq you can easily end up seeing pieces of Iraq fly off. Part of it the Syrians would like to have to the west. Part of eastern Iraq, the Iranians would like to claim, fought over for eight years. In the north you’ve got the Kurds, and if the Kurds spin loose and join with the Kurds in Turkey, then you threaten the territorial integrity of Turkey. It’s a quagmire.”

    That was before Iraq flew planes into the WTC and the Pentagon. Oh, wait...

    108-people are allowed to change their minds- and when dealing with politicians it happens all the time-
    911 unfortunately caused a lot of over reactions and led to less than stellar decisions- you cannot change what has already happened you just have to hope to learn from it and not repeat it

    You do realize that not all moderates/conservatives like all moderates/conservatives, right? We do still have the ability to form an opinion.

    I think of an evil Halloween jack-o-lantern when I see his face. That's just me.

    Except for Dems. Any moderation in their positions must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law--even if it's imaginary.

    You couldn't find one on this site prior to 2007. It was nothing but slavish man-love for Dubya and Cheney.

    Well, since most of their positions are demonically inspired imaginations from the get go, yes, they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    I mean, since you commented.

    Oh, this was on the PNAC radar long before 9-11. Funny, the used to have this stuff up on a website for all to see. Read this and tell me: If you were from another country, what would you think about the USA after reading this? I mean, I get it if it's an internal memo, but to post it out there for the world to see? Speaks to a certain level of arrogance if you ask me. If you want to know the motives of the Bush administration re. the middle east and world affairs, look no further than this, their roadmap for the future.

    The Roman Empire rises again, perhaps?

    Jesus, they even use the term "Pax Americana."

    Here's a snippet that relates to this topic. Their words, not mine.

    Changing your opinion based on new data is a good thing, even if basic. But Cheney is doing it exactly backwards.

    Not just Republicans 108. How convenient that you overlook Clinton, Gore, Kerry, Hillary...you get my point.

    What makes that a globalist thing to say? An isolationist could say it.
