More advice for Democrats

President Bush, yesterday:

"The regime of Saddam Hussein was a clear threat . . . .The world is safer because Saddam Hussein is no longer in power."

Of course that's true. The world would also be safer if Kim Jong Il was no longer power. The world would also be safer if fundamentalist mullahs bent on acquiring nuclear weapons weren't running Iran. While we're at it, the world would be safer if Israel and Palestine stopped fighting, Hezbollah disarmed, Hamas disbanded, the Taliban evaporated, Bin Laden surrendered, and al Qaeda collapsed. But we haven't made much progress on these other safety measures because our military is tied down in Iraq.

Isn't this the key November message? That yes, Democrats and Republicans agreed that Saddam was a threat, but the complete failure to plan for the occupation, the complete lack of an exit strategy, was all due to the failure of the Republican Bush administration. Lay the blame at the door of Rumsfeld, and the votes will follow.

The world will be a safer place when George Bush is out of power. The "world" consists primarily of non-Americans. The "world" consists primarily of non-white, non-christian, non-jewish folks who really didn't fear Saddam Hussain very much. The "world" is much more in danger of getting blown up in the cross fire of dictatorial jackasses as they struggle for power and wealth than they are in danger of being oppressed by petty tyrants.
