Does President Bush have a mafioso mentality? I pose that question on this third anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, based on what I've heard in the media for sometime, especially since the invasion on March 20th, 2003 concerning the President's overwhelming " animosity" towards Sadam Huessin. Last Saturday night, March 18th, that very same issue was discussed at length on the Nate Clay late talk show, WLS-890 A.M., Chicago. The bottom line, as voiced by Mr Clay, was that the President stated even long before he became president that he was highly pissed off at Sadam Huessin for putting out a contract on his father's life; the senior Bush and former president during the Iraq War of 1991. And due to the President's anger over that alleged and failed attempt, as Mr Clay intimated vociferously and angerly, the President seized the opportunity to carry out a vendatta with the pretext that Sadam had weapons of mass destruction, and was sponsoring and supporting terroism. Thus, inferring there was a direct link between Sadam and 9/11 or Osama Bin Laden, as stated by Mr Clay.

Upon reflection of Mr Clay's comments, I don't know why, but a comparative thought came to mind. Well, "if" this is true, the President actually went after Sadam by invading Iraq because of a vendatta he was harboring for a long time, then what separates him from the common criminals such as the mafiosos, i.e. John Gotti, Al Capone, and so on.? The answer is, simply, there is not an ounce of difference, except the President has 1.5 million men and women in the armed forces at his command, coupled with aircraft carriers, jet planes and helicopters, tanks of different makes, sizes and fire power. And last but not least, smart bombs and atomic bombs. Some people say that "for every rumor and stereotype, there is a bit of truth." So whether the President admits his hatred for Sadam was a motivating force in his decision to invade Iraq and overthrow Sadam or not, or whether he is capable of recognizing this as a possiblity or not, one thing for sure, he can never refute the fact that maybe, just maybe, his subconscious "could have" played a role in his final judgment even without his being aware such influence was occurring. Thus, placing him in the same category with crime bosses and godfathers that seek revenge against enemies when someone in their family or dominion is either harmed or killed. This comparison, if Mr Clay's observations are indeed correct, is irrefutable in the world of clinical psychologists.

As a consequence, be it a crime boss or the President of these United States, hatred can be a strong and uncontrollable motivator-both counsciously and subconsciously-which creates an inner urge to retaliate for purpose of sending a decisive clear and brutal message that says:"Messing with this family doesn't pay. And if you do, there is a high price you must pay. " Just look at where Sadam is now? Final note. The President spoke in Cleveland, OH today, providing further justification for removal of Sadam from power and to pump up public support for the war. He stated, firmly: "The decision to remove Sadam Huessin was a [difficult] decision." He repeated with emphasis and with a slight but significant change in wording: "The decision to remove Sadam Huessin was the [right] decision!" And I say: "You decide." I already have; as far back as March 20, 2003. Even before the first bomb was dropped I vehemently felt the reasons given were bogus.
