Back when Gore announced that he wasn't going to run in 2004 I said that it was a mistake if, for no other reason, that he would become immediately persona non grata in the establishment press. Heard anything about him since? Well, you would if you go to more obscure sources (link courtesy Avedon Carol):
Gore Slams U.S. Aim to Seek “Military Dominance” of Rivals
DUBAI, January 11 (IslamOnline & News Agencies) – Former U.S. Vice-President Al Gore warned against the grave repercussions if U.S. war threats to Iraq were to materialize, saying that any potential war in Iraq would be between the world community and the Arab country.
“There is an uncertainty associated with a war on Iraq that also weighs heavily on the economy: not knowing what consequences (the war might have), what a post-war Iraq would look like, what effect there would be on world markets and what the Arab street reaction would be,” Gore was quoted by the Agence France-Presse (AFP) as saying in the Second Gulf Economic Forum launched here on Saturday, January 11.
Gore who has accused Washington of losing focus in its war on terrorism by erroneously pinpointing Iraq, praised the six-member Gulf Cooperation Council for its anti-terror stance.
Any war in Iraq would “not be between the United States and Iraq but the world community and Iraq,” stressed Gore, U.S. President George W. Bush’s rival in the 2000 presidential election.
Nobody could justify, he said, the “reign Saddam Hussein has been responsible for in Iraq and his failure to comply with resolutions ... (after which) he embarked on a mission to build weapons of mass destruction.”
Gore, who won the popular vote for president two years ago but failed to gain enough electoral college votes to win the White House, rounded on the Bush administration, saying its desire to seek “military dominance of political adversaries was wrong.”
