Read this article

I found this editorial in today's Washington Post.

Hijacking Harry Truman

Bush has been comparing himself to Harry S. Truman quite a bit and this editorial capably illustrates why this is preposterous.

Maybe Bush should take a real cue from guys like Truman instead of doing what he wants and trying to liken it to something else. And what about a Marshall Plan for the Third World?

What a lot of people don't get about the differences between Iraq and Korea is that there was an initial military threat and there was consensus in bodies like the UN... I wish George Bush would read his histroy books a little more closely.
