From the Dallas Morning News, this is pretty concerning behavior on the part of George.. what is more concerning is the second part of the first paragraph, "setting up Iraq so his successor could not get out of "our country's destiny". http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcon...N-geyer_31edi.ART.State.Edition1.4370227.html Friends of his from Texas were shocked recently to find him nearly wild-eyed, thumping himself on the chest three times while he repeated "I am the president!" He also made it clear he was setting Iraq up so his successor could not get out of "our country's destiny." The truth of the steadily deteriorating situation in the Middle East is, of course, quite different. The Palestinian people of 40 and even 30 years ago were formal, conservative people who remained closely tied to their families, clans and religious groups. Theirs was a highly stratified society, which has now been shattered.
