The main issue for the 2008 elections will be without doubt the Iraq war. And it is unfortunate that when we have so many important problems right here at home, we are spending so many dollars and human resources in a country where we should not be in the first place.
The irony here is that whatever the reason was for Bush Jr. to trick us to invade Iraq, by going there we have given Al-Queda a new training ground where they did not have one before, fueled a new generation of suicide extremists and created more enemies than ever before.
I don't really know what's going on in the head of George Bush and his pals that they cannot understand that the solution to Iraq is political and not military. And because the solution is political we have to engage not only the tribal leaders inside Iraq, but also Iraq's neighbors namely Iran and Syria.
But I guess we cannot expect George Bush to have the wisdom to clean up his act when he was not smart enough to avoid it in the first place. I guess that's the job of the next president.
