War in Middle East and Bush Doctrine


Recommended Posts

The Wall Street Journal on Friday said that one of the reasons that Bush said they removed the regime in Iraq was to make Israel safer. Over the last two years, Israel has become more of a lightening rod and the WSJ says a lot of that is a result of the war.

Tim Russert on NBC's Meet The Press asked Joe Biden and Newt Gingrich their opinion on the Wall Street Journal story.

Transcipt is to come...

So, did the war in Iraq make Israel safer?

Will an escalationg war help Bush or will it show weaken him?

An escalating war will serve the purpose of providing increased profits to the military industrial complex at the expense of the citizens through direct taxation. Will it hurt Bush, no. He can't be hurt because his term ends, but it can and will hurt the Republican Party.

He could have a complete lame duck final two years in power if her loses Congress.

Apparently, they are dusting off the 9/11 films to show that Bush is still in a war to secure the United States. It is the one thing that unites people behind him. What will it work for Representatives and Senators as it does individually for Bush? That is the big question.

We can pray for this, because if it happens, guess who would hold the keys to certain important investigative committees? Impeachment, and possible criminal prosecution, in my view - and thats knowing just what we know from the press. This man has committed unprecedented constitutional violations of Congressional power. Getting oversight back into Washington will be a good thing.
