I've said more than once that Pres. Bush has been a foreign policy Master. The War on Terror must be fought. The Iraqi Theater in that war, and the installation of democracy in a region not used to such form of government have been strategic moves of immense scale.
And here, Joe Katzman at Winds of Change shows that Bush is thinking beyond this War on Terror and perhaps forging an alliance in our potential Next War.
BTW, this level of deep thinking is one reason why the Main Stream Media is failing so badly. They simply miss this sort of thing, or--when they do cover it--offer it up in such shallow coverage as to miss the importance of our moves.
