As President Bush stubbornly and against the will of the people vetoed the war supplemental bill that did contain language which would set benchmarks and a draw down of our troops, one of the reasons is that he believes it would turn Iraq into a "cauldron of chaos."
While he wishes to protect Iraq from falling down into the black abyss, one wonders if by leaving us open here at home, we stand a chance of finding ourselves facing this abyss. One wonders if we too can windup in our own cauldron of chaos.
One only has to look at the cauldron of chaos that ensued after Hurricane Katrina hit our shores to see how unprepared they were for this natural disaster. What about future natural disasters and un-natural ones? What about another terrorist attack?
