As good an explanation as any about the “Decider’s” unwillingness to halt the Iraq war follows below. Which is why Congress MUST halt this man’s agenda. He is hooked on violence and will not give up the fix willingly. This callous affliction first manifest itself while “W” was governor of Texas and the state saw a spike in the number of capital sentences executed. Once a public drunk, always a public drunk. Just a change of intoxicants. (Emphasis in the following quote is mine.)

“Tyranny starts as a habit; it has the tendency to, and generally finally does develop into a disease. I believe that habit may coarsen and stultify the very best of men, reducing them to the level of brutes. Blood and power make a man drunk: callous coarseness and depravity develop in him; the most abnormal phenomena become accessible, and in the end pleasurable to the mind and the senses. The human being and the citizen perish forever in the tyrant, and a return to human dignity, to repentance, to regeneration becomes practically impossible for him,”

– Fëdor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky, “Memoirs from the House of the Dead.”
