language and war

I just saw some little blip on TV where Rice is saying that a large endevour like "liberating a country" is likely to result in things that could have been better.

"Liberating a country"? What the hell does that mean. Maybe we liberated a group of people from the country that ruled them. But we didn't liberate a country. We destroyed a country.

I guess that's the fundemental mistake that Bush made. He didn't understand the difference. It appears he still doesn't.

I think Colin Powell had understood the difference. Maybe that's why he got fired. Too good at his job for Bush.
