    Mr. Sattar Rind,

    Yes, the opportunity has come and gone. Your article shines light on the consequences of disastrous actions by some and the inactions of others. I’d like to add a comment.

    During an interview of Jon Meacham, the author of Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush, an interesting question was raised. George W. Bush, Jr. asked Meacham how long is it customary to wait before writing a book of a president. Meacham responded 20-25 years. Bush Jr. appeared disappointed. Perhaps, he’d like some attention sooner than later? Yet, I do not foresee his leaving a legacy which follows that of his father’s. I wonder if Bush Jr.’ biography will be written by someone of Meacham’s caliber or a ghost writer?

    In conversations of Bush Sr. and Jr., I am reminded of Shakespeare’s Henry IV and his son. According to Shafritz, J.M., Russell, E.W., & Borick, C.P., scholars in public administration, “As he approaches his death, King Henry IV advises the prince to cope with his forthcoming domestic problems by making an effort to ‘busy giddy minds with foreign quarrels.” It appears Bush Jr. did just that with wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Mr. Rind, I look forward to reading more of your articles.
