New Realities

My latest at the Partial Observer. Excerpt:
Iran-Contra sprang from an "anything goes" philosophy that defined American policy for forty years - now sixty years. Communism was then the pretext; now it is Islamic terror. The National Security Establishment believes that in order to preserve American principles such as peace, freedom, and democracy, we must abandon those very things and remain in a state of "permanent war, a perpetual state of emergency."

  1. Jim, great article.
    It is perhaps a blessing that our current president has done such a blatantly bad job. What if he had had the same objectives, but had pursued them with competence and in full command of reality?
    You quoted the Bush aide Ron Suskind: "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality -- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out."
    Events in the real world have proven that arrogant delusion of empire to be false - if it were true, Iraq would now be a peaceful, united nation celebrating George W. Bush Day. Bush has indeed created new realities, but not the ones he intended. He has weakened our nation, ignited a new generation of terrorists against us, and, let us hope, ignited resistance to the reign of neoconservativism in the US. We must work hard against the anti-democratic, anti-peace, anti-life powers that enrich themselves at the expense of the many through war and secrecy.
