:Bush and Blair Must Never Forget: If They Blink, They Lose
-- Thoughts on the Iraq situation. Neither "Rah, rah!" nor "It's a calamity
!" ... just thoughts.Addendum:
As idiotic as our guys in Abu Ghraib were, to behead a prisoner for the crime of "being American" and then broadcast the video to the world in bloodthirsty joy is even stupider. Nothing built up support for Bush like 9/11 -- nothing is going to refresh
that support like despicable murder. Compared to gleeful dismemberment, humiliating prisoners looks positively civilized.
I don't want the moral high ground to be "whoever committed the fewest atrocities."
