Dave Burris from First State politics and I will be on from 3:00 to 4:00 on WILM's (1450 AM) "Money and Politics in Delaware" with Dace Blaskovitz.
This week we will be talking to corporate governance expert U of D Prof Charles Elson in the first half.
The second half is U of D Prof Khan. This from Dace: IF you missed the show last week Prof Khan created and launched The Khan Plan.
The Dems are wrong about the Iraq war because as the US pulls out, the terrorist will move in. The Rs are equally - and constantly - naive: if you ain't fight to win, IT IS Vietnam! But, The Khan Plan says we get US troops out asap, in order to REPLACE them with an even larger amount of troops. Those troops come from Jordon and Egpt and Kuwait. As Prof Khan points out, we've given Jordon, etc billions of dollars of aid - now they have to do something to get that money.
This sounds an like what Democrats
have been saying all along. "Iraq isn’t Vietnam. America can’t just walk away without horrendous consequences. But “stay the course” isn’t a strategy. And the longer the bleeding goes on there, the harder the electorate will dig for answers—and the tougher they’ll be on those who got us in, and aided, abetted and apologized for them. " - Wes Clark "A plan for success needs to focus on three interlocking objectives: reducing the American presence, building Iraq's capacity and getting other countries to meet their responsibilities to help. First, we need to remove the image of an imperialist America from the landscape of Iraq." - John Edwards"I’ve called for a regional strategy and an international Contact Group repeatedly. So have three former Republican Secretaries of State – Shultz, Kissinger, and Powell. It’s what the Clinton Administration did in the Balkans. It’s what this Administration did in Afghanistan. Organized, sustained international engagement can make all the difference. But it will only happen if America leads." - Joe Biden
Clearly, only the Democrats are taking our security interests seriously. The Bush/Castle determination to "stay the course" is not a strategy for winning - but a strategy to stall defeat.
