Last link's dead, so I'll go check on the Israel news elsewhere.

You raise good points on the occupation. The Kurds problem is one that usually gets ignored but is really quite serious. A good measure of how non-triumphant this story is for the right is that Drudge this morning was leading with some crap about Kerry's divorce papers. The handover was only noted in small lettering above a big Kerry photo and headline.

Thank God SOMEONE'S posted on this. I know it was a purely ceremonial move, but it was nevertheless a pretty big deal.

I think, as with all things, this will profit the Prez in the short term but cause enormous damage in the long term. Without at least nominal control, it's unclear to me how this thing doesn't turn into a Rwanda. But hey, I've only been mostly right about things all along, and Dubya's batting about .023, so who am I to talk.

One promise Dubya did make good on: he's not a nation-builder after all.

I fixed the last link.

I just left a comment at your site, Jeff, before I read your comment here. I think there's a chance that it works out in Iraq. It depends how badly the interim gov't cracks down on the population and the balance they can strike among the three main factions. It was a Pandora's box with guns. Now it's an open Pandora's box with more guns and hopelessly porous borders. Maybe mostly like Lebanon?

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
