Bill Kristol and the entire gang of neo-con warmongers who sold us lies about weapons of mass destruction and the Iraq war and have been clamoring to repeat the folly ever since and everywhere, are all back and advising the awesome foreign policy duo of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Because the last decade went so well . . .

Republicans and other elite representatives of the One-Percenters running this country know that the facts are against them, in everything from economic dealings to the criminal-justice system to the environment. So, when confronted by the facts, they do everything they can to draw attention away from themselves, preferably through the use of inflammatory statements intended to bog people down in defending against them.

There are things one reads that uplift one; things that bore one; things that irritate one.
And then there are things that make you want to hunt down the author and slap the taste out of his or her mouth.

As the United States struggles to respond to rapidly changing conditions in Egypt, it is informative to look at the arc of US foreign policy over the past half century or so.

It’s remarkable how the neocons can go from weeping crocodile tears for The Poor Oppressed Peoples Of The World and arguing that we need to use force to bring them The Sacred Gospel Of Democracy… to stamping their feet because the President doesn’t want to incinerate those very same people for the crimes of the rulers we were supposed to want to save them from.

As I type this, the schedules for tomorrow’s TV talk shows are being firmed up and finalized. You know that they’re going to be just jam-packed with neocons and Bush dead-enders lining up to tell Obama he’s a punk and a pussywillow for even considering pulling out of Afghanistan. With that in mind, let’s make [...]
