The preemptive president

by Marjorie Cohn

TruthOut

09/10/04

Under the guise of preempting -- or preventing -- threats to the American people, George W. Bush has acted aggressively to 'jump the gun' throughout his presidency. By the use of extreme rhetoric and scare tactics, Team Bush convinced Congress -- and nearly half the electorate -- that the guns he was jumping were real. The guns,
however, proved illusory, and indeed, backfired, making us less safe.

... Moreover, following our role model, Russia has just announced that it, too, will engage in preemptive strikes against terrorist bases in 'any region of the world.' This announcement comes as the United States is issuing statements favoring a political settlement with Chechen separatists. The chickens have, in the prescient words of Malcolm X, come home to roost.
