Philip Klein writes an incisive article about Rudy Giuliani that I have not found elsewhere. Several subjects are not addressed by any candidate:
1. The 9/11 destruction of the World Trade Center affected the international community.
2. The Iraq War can be strategically resolved before the election with the right leadership although Giuliani is correct that the War on Terrorism is long term. Where has he been and what has he done since 9/11?
3. Addressing the Middle East Crisis (including Darfur) and radical Islam, including Iran. As the article suggests, NATO has an even greater interest than Afghanistan because of Turkey and Europe’s history in the Middle East.p>4. Experience counts; a plus for good experience and a minus for bad experience. A comfortable, ineffectual Washington Senate seat that has not moved national policy is a bad experience. br> — Bruce Daniels br> Running Springs, California /p>
You quote Rudy Giuliani saying, “We are all members of the 9/11 generation.”
You also suggest that the American occupation of Iraq is related to what happened on September 11, 2001, and that Giuliani’s plans for the next phase of the “war on terror” are a direct outgrowth of 9/11.
