I am really not very encouraged with two items in the news. The first is the announcement that Bush would like to increase the size of our armed forces. The second is in regards to a recent revelation that the Navy is going to increase its presence in the Persian Gulf to warn Iran about its recent behavior.
I know it seems far-fetched to bring up, but this is not a normal person in the White House. I would not be surprised if within a year we are militarily engaged in Iran. The president is becoming increasingly detached from reality and views himself as a monumental historical figure. Iran is just the place to cement, what he thinks, will be his grand legacy.
