réquisitoire

Il faut absolument lire cet article de William Pfaff dans la New York Review of Books intitulé "A Disaster by any measure". Il fait le point précis et en peu de mots des erreurs de l'administration Bush dans la gestion de "la guerre contre le terrorisme". C'est aussi un réquisitoire cinglant contre les néo-cons qu'il traite de "géopoliticiens amateurs"!

"These results are due in part to the amateur geopoliticians of the neoconservative New American Century initiative, and their Washington allies. Israel needed no such friends, nor does George W. Bush, who with their help, on the fifth anniversary of the September 11 attacks, looked more than ever as though he'll finish his term as the most disastrous president in American history".


Au passage il donne en peu de mots une explication tranchante des motifs électoralistes en particulier du mauvais génie ("boy genius" comme son patron l'appelle) de Bush : Karl Rove


"President Bush and Karl Rove, his propaganda packager, preferred the global cold war model—the "long war" —capable of being presented to the American public as a communism-like "struggle for the world," so as to mobilize Americans around George Bush, wearing his flight jacket."
