Pat Buchanan's Right Again. Dammit.

In Why the Antiwar Democrats Will Retreat, he nails it.
Bush is winning today because he has jettisoned the jabber about global democracy and argues that a U.S. withdrawal risks a strategic disaster, national humiliation, massacre of our friends and triumph for al-Qaida. Democrats, fearing he may be right, are in paralysis.

Scourged for 20 years over Who Lost China? they don't want to spend the next 20 years answering Who Lost the Middle East?

Thus the rout of the peace Democrats. But the movement will be back. For, Petraeus' good news notwithstanding, there is no light yet visible at the end of this tunnel.
Agreeing with Pat tends to give me that icky feeling inside, but sometimes it has to be done.

Fear and Loathing

According to a FOXNews.com PR piece for the batch of thugs and school-yard bullies (with nuclear weapons) currently in power in the good 'ol US of A, our collective hands will soon be even gorier. Considering how well it's worked elsewhere, why not bomb Iran back to the Stone Age? If they don't do what we tell 'em, they deserve what they get.

If we let our current ruling regime get away with this, we deserve what we get.

Our victims don't.

Here's a simple mnemonic for the solution: ICICI.

  • Impeach
  • Convict
  • Indict
  • Convict
  • Imprison
Repeat as needed.

Murder, war crimes, treason, desertion--no shortage of grounds. Mix and match, or pick a personal favorite.
