In the year 2024. . .


Island of Balta believes “”In 20 years, we will look back and say that the single greatest failure of this Administration was the fact that it allowed Iran time to build the bomb.”

This got me thinking.

Balta may well be right.  However, there are MANY things that we might refer to as the greatest failure of this administration twenty years from now.  The Iranian nukes are a good candidate, but here are some others:

  • The failure to stop North Korea from reprocessing spent fuel rods at Yongbyon
  • The failure to follow up the Afghani campaign with the destruction of Al Qaeda
  • The invasion of Iraq for no apparent reason, and the alienation of the Islamic world
  • The squandering of the Clinton surplus in favor of massive budget deficits
  • The squandering of goodwill following 9/11 and the destruction of the Western alliance
  • The war against our environmental regulations
  • The withdrawal from every even slightly inconvenient international agreement

This administration has been hard at work.  Any of these could end up being its worst mistake twenty years from now.  I’m sure that I’ve missed a few, and I’m also sure that another four years would give us a lot more candidates.
