Nation-Building >> Dean: President Bush "putting us in harms way" via reckless foreign policy | return to front page

"America has two great dominant strands of political thought - conservatism, which, at its very best, draws lines that should not be crossed; and progressivism, which, at its very best, breaks down barriers that should never have been erected." -- Bill Clinton, Dedication of the Clinton Presidential Library, November 2004

Dean: President Bush "putting us in harms way" via reckless foreign policy http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story2&u=/nm/20030304/pl_nm/politics_dean_dc

Our current "regime" is determined to attack Iraq regardless of reality, while they are ignoring more pressing issues such as the crisis on the Korean peninsula. Yesterday Dean launched another blistering critique of the Bush "foreign policy": "It's appalling. They are putting us in harm's way because of their obsession with Iraq, which does not now and is not going to have nuclear weapons."

Our candidate went on to detail what he sees as serious failures on the Korean peninsula. He stated that Bush's refusal to engage North Korea directly has caused the crisis to worsen, especially considering that North Korea is about to "go nuclear" on Bush's watch. "We could find ourselves in a war with North Korea very quickly and this administration is virtually paying no attention to it."

The good doctor also pointed out that recent diplomatic failures are contributing to rising anti-American sentiment across the globe, and added "It's ghastly. We have treated most of the world with contempt, both our enemies and our friends, and it's not surprising we don't have many friends left."

The article ends on a positive note, with Dean stating that fundraising is going very well during this first quarter. However, the campaign still needs your help! This first quarter is crucial because it will probably determine who the true "Tier 1" candidates are. Please consider making a donation to the Dean campaign now if you support him. It's important to give him financial backing and show the DNC establishment that we believe Dean is the man to take on Bush and WIN!

About Nation-Building

Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
