No More Coincidence
I heard the news on the Beeb last night, that Al Quida has claimed responsibility for the Madrid train bombing, as a retaliation for Spain's backing of George Bush's little Mesopotamian Excursion. What I didn't know though was that the attack happened a week before Spain's general election. Or that the attack happened exactly two and a half years after the WTC attack. (I think on some level I had intuited this but never bothered to do the math).
My heart goes out to Prime Minister Aznar and King Carlos and the people of Spain (see Jeb, it's not so hard to find out who these people are).
And it makes me wonder if this is what we have to look forward to in six months: another attack on Bush's watch. But this time he's not going to get a chance to spin it around to his favor. It's plain now that George Bush is an absolute failure when it comes to the War on Terror. He spent the last two years going after a shattered dictator in an unarmed country while the real terrorists were at large, plotting and calculating, just like they were three years ago when Bush was vacationing on his ranch.
That about sums up George W. Bush's term as president: On Vacation.
