War Party Parallels 1999-2003

How different was Clinton from Bush, and how different will Kerry be?
1999: Lies tailored to sensibilities of supporters of party holding presidency and criticized by supporters of other party --> War ---> Permanent base built by Haliburton in Kosovo

2003: Lies tailored to sensibilities of supporters of party holding presidency and criticized by supporters of other party --- > War ---> Permanent bases built by Haliburton in Iraq (and Uzbekistan, etc.)

Richard Holbrooke, Clinton's man in Yugoslavia, said in the Washington Post before the Iraq attack that Clinton didn't bother with UN approval for Kosovo and nor should Bush for Iraq.

The War Party marches on.
