If you get the chance, read this. Fisk knows what he is talking about.

Of course, it will depress the shit out of you, but hey, that's war for you.

Yep
It is, in fact, wonderful and true.

I had an argument over this very notion with a co-worker today who said that it's OK for the Bush government to try non US citizens for terrorism in secret military tribunals and execute them forthwith. That foreign nationals should "know the climate" when they come here and expect that their lives will be at risk because they come from a country where terrorism is fostered.

When I mentioned that our foreign policy and SELLING THEM ALL GUNS is a large part of what creates a really good terrorist organization in the first place, she admitted she hadn't thought of it. She knows Gore won the election, but says she doesn't see how Bush won't be a two-term President and that "no one really cares" any more.

It was totally disheartening.

We will continue to back thugs and murderers to achieve short-term aims without thought of tomorrow, creating the next group of terrorists and thugs to come back and bite us in the ass.
