I could be wrong and hope that I will be but my guesses for America's future include:
- The GOP will regain control of Congress by retaking the Senate and increasing their House majority.
- The US will attack Iraq, depose Hussein, establish a democratic Iraq, and use Iraq as a base of operations from where we will seek to influence the region broadly and to—ostensibly at least—hunt al-Queada (sic). [Yeah, that's how I spelled it in this particular entry. - sji]
- George W. Bush will be our president for 8 years.
- We will be controlling oil in Iraq , bringing us in cold conflict w/ Russia whose old southern Soviet republics have a lot of oil.
OK, so I definitely got the last one wrong. (And by "old...republics" I meant former.) I got the 2-term G. W. Bush prediction right.
