THE BATTLE OF GREASY GRASS CREEK

This is an interesting article. Custer's arrogance and overconfidence had been the very things that caused him to succeed so well in the War Between the States. Yet it was these very traits that led to his ultimate failure.
My comment is this: Are the traits that have led to G. Bush's success "going on gut instinct and holding firm in the face of adversity" the very things that will lead to his own political destruction, specifically the ill-conceived adventure in Iraq which has blown a whole in the armed forces for years to come, and, no matter what the outcome (and I hope we win) financially weakened the country to such a point that we will never fully recover?
I think Custer is a cautionary tale that it would be wise to study.
