Paul Craig Roberts, a "Reagan conservative," has this to say about Mr. Bush:<br><br>[color:blue]Bush is like Hitler. He blames defeats on his military commanders, not on his own insane policy. Like Hitler, he protects himself from reality with delusion. In his last hours, Hitler was ordering non-existent German armies to drive the Russians from Berlin.</font color=blue><br><br>The whole is an interesting read because Roberts brings a "conservative" perspective, in the old-fashioned sense of almost Kissinger-like Realpolitik, to the whole business in Iraq. He points out, for instance, that [color:blue]The reason the US has not been driven out of Iraq is that the majority Shi’ites have not been part of the insurgency. The Shi’ites are attacking the Sunnis, who are forced to fight a two-front war against US troops and Shi’ite militias and death squads.The US owes its presence in Iraq, just as the colonial powers always owed their presence in the Middle East, to the disunity of Arabs. Western domination of the Muslim world succeeded by not picking a fight with all of the disunited Arabs at the same time.</font color=blue><br><br>What Bush wants to do with the "surge," therefore, runs counter to the entire history of western involvement in the Middle East: [color:blue]Attacking the Shi’ite militias while fighting a Sunni insurgency would violate this rule. If Bush ignores US military commanders and expert opinion and accepts the surge option advanced by the delusional neocon allies of Israel’s right-wing Likud Party, US troops will be engulfed in general insurgency. This is why General John Abizaid resigned on January 5. He wants no part of the Republican Party’s sacrifice of US soldiers to sectarian conflict.</font color=blue><br><br>Anyway, I find the perspective interesting.<br><br>

Need to contain zionist expansionism?! <br><br>I used to think it was terrible that life was unfair. Then I thought what if life were fair and all of the terrible things that happen came because we really deserved them? Now I take great comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe.
