Bush was right in 2000 and Bush did blow it when he subsequently failed to follow his own advice in Afghanistan and Iraq. But Bush's advise is better preventive medicine then any cure for existing involvement – if we don't want to be involved in nation building then we shouldn't use our forces for nation destroying. As a general rule, if the enforcement of law and order is removed in the defeated country then disorder, not a better government, follows and the result will be worse than if we hadn't gone in in the first place.
