The problem in Iraq is the same problem experienced in Vietnam.  NO CLEARLY 

Yet Mr. Bush proudly declares "Stay the Course".  Where does this course lead?  
To a safer Mideast for the Saudi royal family?  Preservation of a major oil 
source?  Where does this course take us, Mr. Bush?

Yet there is mounting evidence (daily) of ethnic cleansing in Africa.  No oil.  
No royal family.  Just citizens dying (by the thousands) for no reason.

And the beat goes on.

becau> se, in Mr. Lileks' world, there is no Edith.  There is no pragmatic,

nothi> ng contradictory about honoring a soldier's service while opposing the

> None, among others.  I never agree with King's conclusions, but her
analy> ses are brilliant.  She is a sarcastic, witty, effective scourge of me
