I've occasionally alluded to my general pessimism about the Bush Administration's ability to manage a post-war Iraq in any fashion that rises above "Half-assed". So my fears in this regard were not allayed in the slightest by the report that the Administration omitted funding for nation-building in Afghanistan from the new budget.

I've just about bought into the idea that the coming war is a necessary step for making the world a better place. Problem is, as far as I can tell from the administration's behavior and public statements, they think it's the only step.
