Re: We're on the map!, Volume 11, Number 7, February 21 - 27, 2005
Bush has reached a dead end in his foreign policy, but he has failed to recognize his quandary. His belief that the polite reception he received in Europe is a vindication of his previous adventures is a vestige of fantasy.
He gives no indication that he grasps how his policy has become exhausted.
His reductio ad absurdum [reduction to an absurdity] was reached with his statement [made prior to Bush's visit to Slovakia] on Iran: "This notion that the US is getting ready to attack Iran is simply ridiculous. And having said that, all options are on the table."
This is our strategic partner!
