So it was with interest I read this post about a highly estemmed group of diplomats that disagree with the administrations policies. Some of the points I liked, because the mirror my own thinking, are:
- The United States is feared and distrusted across the world much more than in the past.
- Bush is the one pushing foreign policy, not a cabal of Cheney/Rumsfeld/Wolfowitz/et al.
- Asking or hinting that Rumsfeld should have quit after Abu-Ghraib would have been a good/strong thing.
- The Powell Doctrine was right, we should have had many more troops when we started this.
I can only ask that you read and think for yourself.
