Looking from Europe I ask myself: Do US citizen believe Bush made US safer? If Yes: Why, if No: Why? In my opinion Bush created more risks in US and more anger worldwide. 1. We saw today that even some nuclear material is lost in Iraq. Will it be used against US or against Americans in Iraq? 2. We see that environment is not taken serious by the actual administration: Safer ... only a short term or also a long term issue? 3. Money for Homeland security is now used in Iraq to "educate" policemen in Iraq. 4. Since the Iraq war we see that al-Zarqawi became active, which was put today on the list of terrorist organizations. Before there was no terrorism in Iraq, yet it target American soldiers and civilians. What if he uses his contacts in US? There is a resemblence in how Israel acts against Palestinians and how Bush reacts against "terrorists". Did Israel finally won? No. How many years does it uses excessive force? 20 years? What result? More tension, more violence. Is this the way Bush is going to export freedom and bring safety in US and protection worldwide for Americans? I believe that the risk is yet bigger that fanatic people in US and in other countries will use more force and violence in several ways against Americans and American interests. But maybe that's one of the goals ... good news for the weapon industry.
