Bush: US vulnerable in transition period
Quote:The US is vulnerable to terrorist attacks in the change period before Barack Obama takes office, says outgoing President George W. Bush.

"We're in a struggle against violent extremists determined to attack us, and they would like nothing more than to exploit this period of change to harm the American people," AFP quoted Bush as saying in a Thursday speech to White House aides.

Bush said the threat of terrorism and 'economic challenges that will not pause to let a new president settle in' were among the reason why he had made it 'a priority for the rest of his presidency to ensure this transition is as smooth as possible'.

According to what is known as the Bush doctrine, the unpopular President proposes that the US has the right to aggressively secure itself from countries it believes harbor or give aid to terrorist groups. Bush used this doctrine to justify the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan.

Speculation runs high that despite the US sinking deeper into recession, in the last days of his tenure, Bush might use his self-proclaimed doctrine to wage a fresh 'war on terror'.

The world is expecting a 'less arrogant' US after Obama, however, analysts say he will pursue the same foreign policy adopted by the Bush Administration.

According to former assistant secretary of state Edward Walker, 'the basic difference is going to be style'.
