Bush's Grand Design (Delusion?)

Recent story in The New Yorker by Seymour Hersh says Bush has sent teams of covert operatives into Iran--and they've been there for months--gathering information on Iran's nuclear capabilities. Aparently, in order to eliminate them or severly wreck them and embarrass the mullah's who rule Iran.
On the surface this looks like a great idea, but I, along with NoumenalSelf, (see link at left) think this is/could lead to further disaster for America and it's military. Why? Those of us who are familiar with philosophy, history, political science, know that fundamentally the secular West is at WAR with Islam. Our leaders spectacular failure to name our enemy is why this campaign is flagging, and will continue to --perhaps--worsen. I hate seeing this for our military, who don't deserve to be made into sacrificial lambs.
As for our current leader's "strategy" this same article reveals an astounding plan by the Bush team to foster unrest in all ten Mid-eastern nations.
Several objectivist's re-elected and support President Bush, because they like or are in favor of the likes of Rice, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Cheney. But I say, given that these four people are/seem to be decent and pro-American, this is precisely why we should have voted Bush out.

I just want to end, for now, by saying to you, as concerning our 'war on terror'. Who said the following: "In any compromise between two sides with the same fundamental principles, it is the more irrational one who wins."

Here's the New Yorker story. You really should study it carefully, then go to, as well:

As an aside, my thanks go to The Charlotte Capitalist for mentioning my link about Theocracy Watch, below.

Here's a link to a website that concerns itself with the rise of the "Religious Right" and its takeover of the Republican Party. Check it out.

Susan Sontag: Goodbye and good riddance

The "brave", sophisticated, deeply intelligent, writer/intellectual" Susan Sontag died shortly after Christmas.
I say, good-bye and good riddance to another hate-America leftist pest.
Here's a great summation of her hypocrisy.

Go. Read.

Quick NFL Notes

Okay now, don't laugh. The Cincinnati Bengals are, and have been, my favorite team since their inception. Marvin Lewis fired the defensive coordinator, Leslie Frazier, today. I've two things to say about this:
1) Frazier should never have been hired.
2) Frazier should have been fired after last season.

Also, big stories out of Seattle say Holmgren is on the hot seat there. Pshaw! Ray Rhodes is their Defensive Coordinator--- a loser wherever he's been. The only reason Rhodes won in Philly as Head coach, was John Gruden as his offensive coordinator. Talk about someone (Rhodes) who has an undeserved reputation as a good coach!!!!!!!!!!! After Gruden left Philly, what happened there. Nosedive! Rhodes went to Green Bay (I think) LOSER. Fired. Rhodes went to Denver as Defensive coordinator. ONE SEASON. Fired. Now in Seattle, he's poisoned that unit's ability to get better. CAN ANYBODY GET A HINT?
