There have been reports in the press the last couple of days that Bush has been "serene" and "calm" about the approaching invasion of Iraq. As if this suggests that his is a steady hand at the tiller of state. No More Mister Nice Blog has an alternative suggestion. To tell you the truth, when it comes time to decide whether to launch an attack that will likely lead to the death of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, I don't want a leader who is "serene" about it. That just tells me he doesn't appreciate the gravity of the decision he is making.
