Catastrophic Success = Gross Incompetence

Want to know why the success in Iraq is so catastrophic? Read this from The New York Times: 'Catastrophic Success': The Strategy to Secure Iraq Did Not Foresee a 2nd War.

So for all those people voting for Bush because they think he's stronger on the war on terrorism . . . how can such gross incompetence be a strength? Bush is better at bluster and sloganeering, but he can't think strategically and has no real longterm view beyond staying this inane course premised on denying what's gone wrong. It's not a catastrophic success that's putting Iraq on the edge of permanent catastrophe. It's:
  • catastrophic incompetence
  • catastrophic hubris
  • catastrophic arrogance
  • catastrophic bluster
  • catastrophic blindness-to-reality.

Bush is the catastrophe.

If he can't manage, to use his own way of framing Iraq, a battle in the war on terror, why should we trust him with the larger war?
