An excellent discussion of the Powell Doctrine and the Rumsfeld Doctrine. One a success and one a failure. It also demonstrates the dysfunctional aspects of this administration, the inability of the State Dept. (Powell) and the Defense Dept. (Rumsfeld) to work together in any sort of collaboration. We see it today, when we are sending Richard Armitage to the Middle East to curry favor with the Arab states, days after Sharon gets the administration's blessing and a Hamas leader is assassinated. Should be a nice mission.I am neither a registered Republican nor Democrat. I "vote the candidate" not the party. This usually translates into a "lesser of two evils" vote.
This year, it's a no brainer. In fact, that's my greatest fear for my children.
