Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The War Pig

I'm with Booman that my questions aren't answered.  There are logical problems in this that haven't been answered.  But the war drums are being beaten.  And as we saw in 2003, once the war drums start beating, it is very hard to silence them.

But I'm not sure that we are headed for a full on war.  This feels more like a Libya than an Iraq.  That doesn't make it OK, it doesn't make it right and it doesn't make it safe.

But I don't think this is Iraq.  Because if it is, then this is how the Republicans win the White House in 2016.
