Or What?

Aside from a fervent belief in The Green Lantern School of Foreign Policy, the only other part of the Bush Doctrine seems to be the belief that if you send Karen Hughes and Condi Rice out to give stern lectures to people that you'll accomplish something.

BAGHDAD, Iraq – Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, making an election-season visit to Iraq, said Thursday she will tell its leaders they have limited time to settle political differences spurring sectarian and insurgent violence.

“They don't have time for endless debate of these issues,” Rice said during a news conference aboard her plane. “They have really got to move forward. That is one of the messages that I'll take, but it will also be a message of support and what can we do to help.”
