2007 Annus Mirabilis for the Bush Administration
The following was written in early 2007. It is republished here in view of the current unfolding of the Arab Spring that has been inspired by Iraq’s nascent Democracy.

Pleasingly it is people like Keith on Online Opinion who can see through the fraudulent, antiquarian, and full of hatred contentions of Dr. MacQueen against the Bush administration. MacQueen in parading all the past negatives of the Iraq war he deliberately misses and does not acknowledge the present positives that have issued since the new Bush strategy of the Surge implemented by the capable and savant-general Petraeus. The chances are that these positives will serve as the foundation stone upon which a democratic Iraq could arise, and in turn would serve as an example for the rest of the people of the Middle East to imitate.
As I predicted in a paper of mine on December 2006, the year 2007 would be the Annus Mirabilis for Bush, in regards to the Iraq war.
