Look no further than your Georgia backyard for the best analogy for supporting President George W. Bush's war with Iraq - kudzu.
One of the reasons kudzu was expanded throughout the South was for erosion control. While confined and manageable, it was not a threat to other living plants and trees. Left unchecked and unregulated, it has become a monstrous crisis that is unbeatable. Many would have laughed at the early warning signs that it could become such a burden.
