You of course know that it is the job of the pentagon to continuously
plan on how to invade and defeat every country on the face of the globe.
It is what they do, just in case. I would expect there is a plan to
invade Mexico, Canada, the UK, Iran, Iraq and all the rest.
As far as O'Neil goes, lets see....... His bigest complaint was that
bush sits in cabinet meetings listening while his advisors give him
their opinions then goes off and makes decisions? Hmmmmmmm sounds like
a horrible manager to me (Sarcasim intended). Then the guy is fired
because he wouldn't go along with the president..... And now he
publishes a book that bashes Bush...... Hmmmmmmm, believe who you will.
What he was describing was not a Pentagon exercise in war theroy. This
was a White House NSC meeting 10 days in to Bush's Presidency. What he
talked about was an on-going plan at the White House on how to invade
and occupy Iraq, and then on how to manage to oil fields. AND how to
sell it to the American people. What you are talking about goes on in
the corners of the Pentagon by geeks in front of computers.
You picture Bush as The Great Manager and he was describing a man who
is being managed by Carl Rove and Dick Cheney. Whether you love or
hate Bush most agree that he is not a great thinker. Finally, I don't
think Paul O'Neil is going to go out of his way to bash the White
House. He has nothing to gain from it. He has worked in 2 other
Republican administrations and knows how things work in Washington.
Also, Paul O'Neil didn't write or publish the book. He was interviewed
by the author and supplied 19,000 pages of documents to the auther.
Most of the damning information about the Bush administration comes
form the documents not from Paul O'Niel's mouth. If Paul O'Neil simply
wnet on record and said, "Bush is an idiot" no one would really pay
that much attention.
I guess you don't understand the root cause of "terrorism".
Given the controversy surrounding just how much the White House knew about
the pending attacks, the Bush Admin stonewalling of the 9-11 inquiry, the
unelected president who sat listening to schoolgirls talk about pet goats
with the full knowledge that the country is being attacked, how well do you
really think George Bush has protected you?
If you want to stick to facts, you could start by acknowledging that President
Bush was, in fact, lawfully elected, despite the strenuous efforts of Florida
Democrats to steal the election, in violation of both state and Federal
election laws. FYI: the Supreme Court voted 7-2 that the Florida recounts were
illegal. Not 5-4 as commonly misunderstood by the news media. The 5-4 vote was
over the question of whether the recounts should be allowed to proceed. Yes,
folks, that's correct: two of the seven justices that voted that the recounts
were illegal, later voted that they should be allowed to continue anyway.

How come we choose from just two people to run for president and 50 for Miss America?
And I get assaulted for getting my facts from Fox News....
Let's try this again....cite (from a reputable source). For some reason,
I'm not certain I'm getting accurate information from "whywehatebush.com".
That was my only posting in this thread, and I asked a question. I did not
state any facts. I guess you pay attention to threads about as well as you
do to facts. Get over it. Your guy didn't win Florida. The Supreme Court
affirmed the State of Florida certification of the results. If you'd like
to let me pick and choose which Supreme Court decisions we can listen to and
which ones we can ignore, I've got a list ready.
