Some political predictions:
Once again the media -which is almost genetically anti-Bush- has whipped itself into hysteria fueled by the hope that he will fail. I believe their hatred of him is the motivator and they are indulging in a kind of optimism that this will be his Waterloo. The most obvious comparison is of course Modo and Afghanistan.
But my point is that the more they screech that we are losing, the GREATER the glory of victory.
They are walking into a political trap of their own making. I believe they are about to make utter fools of themselves one more time.- On some level, a substantial portion of the public senses this, “gets it” and in the end, this will only enhance Bush. They will be doing him a political favor.
Any politician’s career is hardly an important thing compared to the outcome of a war. Bush knows this.-He does not care that he is risking all on this.-His ultimate goal is life is not political, that is secondary.– He has a deeper aspect to him that Clinton -a more “intelligent” president- never had.-For Clinton, political victory is the epicenter of the universe.– For Bush in this particular, protecting the country is.
Once again, the second guessers have underestimated Bush, this time by underestimating temporarily our military. I believe they shall, -little by little, -destroy the Republican Guard and like a well oiled machine,- crush the enemy.-I believe that inside of the-enemy’s universe right now,- there is-mostly fear and a growing despair. They have seen the casualties on their side.-They can do the math, comparing our twenty something deaths with their hundreds, perhaps already thousands.
Our strategy will work and all -that will be lost, is time.-Not more lives, not more infrastructure,- just some time.-This may not be a happy fact for the Nasdaq nor Helen Thomas, but for the rest of us,-we are content.
The media has once again given an opportunity to Bush in the longer run. I think he knows this. I think they will rue their hysteria in the not so distant future.
I think it’s too soon to predict the course of this war. But there’s a pretty good chance this emailer could be right.
