The Global Impact of Bush's War Crimes in Iraq: King Midas in Reverse Were we merely limiting ourselves to the catastrophes that has bedeviled both the United States and Iraq as a consequence of Bush's war, we'd be forced to conclude that Bush's national security policy has the touch of King Midas in reverse. Unfortunately, as serious pre-war scholars and critics feared and predicted, Bush's King Midas touch in reverse has extended far beyond Iraq and the United States.

For Bush and McCain, Iraqis are merely "ropes for American dirty laundry" Like the quislings in the Green Zone that the Bush administration installed via so-called "democratic elections," the Awakening forces are coming to be seen as mere "ropes for American dirty laundry." Not just the dirty laundry of Bush's sordid invasion and McCain's myopic cheerleading, but also the dirty laundry of American Exceptionalism.

The Psychopath's "State of the Union": Disguising America's Deep Humiliation "Nobody wants to be dependent on an America that talks loudly about how indispensable it is, yet stages coups, makes threats, overthrows governments, democratic or not, and kills many of the world's poorest people, to the amusement of some generals." [pp. 388-89]. Such is the state of our union.

Addressing America's "Deeper Malignancies" According to Condoleezza Rice, the Bush administration's goal after September 11 was to address the deeper malignancies of the Middle East.

Barack in Iraq Having foolishly raised expectations to justify their invasion of Iraq, Bush and McCain have their reputations at stake. Which is why they cannot define success there as Barack Obama has defined it and why they have neither a strategy for success nor strategy for leaving Iraq. All they have is the surge (a mere tactic) and hope for a miracle.

Iraq, Iran and the Moral Rot Infecting the Soul of America Walter Lippmann said it best: "No moral code, as such, will enable [a person] to know whether he is exercising his moral faculties on a real and an important event. For effective virture, as socrates pointed out long ago, is knowledge; and a code of right and wrong must await upon a perception of the true and false."
