I think Bush is on the side of destabilization, even if as a puppet
No argument. He is one stupid, cold-hearted, insensitive, spoiled, aristocratic SOB. To my way of thinking, he is analagous to King Rehoboam in the Bible. Listens to the wrong advisors because he likes to go hard-ass on everyone.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not feeling sorry for Bush, either, no matter what happens.
That's what makes Dubya such a perfect fall guy...
