I Have a Plan
While bearing with the continual cacophony of calls for a timetable of evacuation from the quagmire in Iraq and criticism that Bush has no plan, I was reminded of the campaign for the presidency in 2004. Senator Kerry kept saying that he had a plan, although we never found out what it was. Supposedly the assertion that you had a plan was enough, and even is preferable to toppling a dictatorial regime, rebuilding physical and economic infrastructures, training native troops, and overseeing constitutional elections.
Brought to my recollection, also, is a line from the movie, "The Hunt for Red October". The carrier captain informs Jack Ryan, "The Russians [Soviets] don't even take a dump without a plan." ===I'm drawing a lot of parallels.====
