The National Security Strategy of the United States - the document

Well, the White House has released the document that is supposed to clarify Bush's stance on Iraq, terror and any other perceived national threats. I've only begun to dip into it, but it's supposedly "written so the boys in Lubbock can read it". I guess that means I should be able to absorb, if not understand, it.

As one NY Times article states: "One of the most striking elements of the new strategy document is its insistence that the president has no intention of allowing any foreign power to catch up with the huge lead the United States has opened since the fall of the Soviet Union more than a decade ago.

We're not just taking about Iraq anymore (Al Qaeda? What's that? ans: ancient history). Any country. Forget North Korea and Cuba. What about somebody already with a degree of global power. Say...The People's Republic of China, for instance?

Oh well, enjoy yourself, it's later than you think. Much, much later.
