The American Prospect has an interesting article by Michael Thomasky in regards to the President seemingly implying that some forms of ethnic backlash are okay if the ethnicity involved comes from a country that doesn't support his war. Apparently not satisfied with limiting his engendering of anti-American sentiment across formerly friendly Europe, the President also seems intent on cutting ties with our North American allies as well. And here I thought Pat Buchanan had split with the GOP.

Also from the Prospect are these three pieces, one by Paul Starr which shows while this war seems uncomplicated to Americans, the ramifications are anything but. And of greater interest are these articles by Robert Kuttner and John B. Judis, the first compares Bush's policies of aggression to those of his forebears and the second gives a glimpse as to what's going on in the cabinet.

My fellow poster Andrew, in a conversation with me the other night, compared Bush's paranoia to Richard Nixon. At first I didn't think much of it, but now I believe the comparison is not only fair, but it could be much worse. Nixon never had a catalyst push his paranoia over a maddening cliff like Bush has with September 11. He is leading this country on a crusade that is widening in its scope and in its lunacy. Like Nixon, he has also surrounded himself with supporters who are for the most part more scary than he is. People like Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, John Ashcroft, and Paul Wolfowitz. Voices of reason in the administration are either ignored or replaced. Like Nixon, Bush remains very popular among the people. Unlike Nixon, Bush has led these people to the very edge of the worst foreign policy decision in American history, and will likely lead them off that cliff, in the days to come.
