Steve at The Carpetbagger Report found this list of the five (5) fatal mistakes (or were they?) Bush committed with the Middle East.
Time magazine’s Scott MacLeod, reporting from the Middle East, recently spoke to a veteran Western diplomat who couldn’t muster any optimism about the future of the region. “The region is in as serious a mess as I have ever seen it,” he said. “There is an unprecedented number of interconnected conflicts and threats.”Always comes down to a burning Bush, doesn't it?
It led MacLeod to compile a list of the president’s “five fatal mistakes” that contributed to the crisis in the Middle East. It’s a pretty solid list.
1. Bush ignored the Palestinians:
2. Bush invaded Iraq:
3. Bush misjudged Iran:
4. Bush hurt Israel:
5. Bush alienated Muslims
