A couple NYTimes articles.
- My new favorite line is, "Some things are true even if George Bush believes them."
- Oh wow this makes me cringe
- The critics also have it wrong when they say that the strategy by the United States for the opening hours of the conflict — likely to involve more than 3,000 precision-guided bombs and missiles in the first 48 hours — is intended to damage and demoralize the Iraqi people. It is intended to damage and demoralize the Iraqi military and to dissuade Iraqi leaders from using weapons of mass destruction against our forces or against neighboring countries, and from committing further atrocities against the Iraqi people.
A suggestion e-mailed to Glenn Reynolds as an alternative to freedom fries:
Isn't the time coming for the American people to show their gratitude and appreciation to Tony Blair. He is in political trouble for supporting the US and a little public support from the streets of America might help.A tee hee alternative.
Stop the 'Freedom Fries' nonsense, call 'em chips like the English do.
Another French-bashing tee hee.
I don’t understand when people call the French our allies. Obviously they are not on our side. Do people just mean fellow members of the UN or something?
And a tee hee of a non-political nature.
I agree with asparagirl that the following is the best part of this piece (and one of the best things i’ve read on the issue in general):
I can accept the yearning for a peaceful solution, but sometimes one simply doesn't exist. Maybe we tried the peaceful solutions. And maybe we found out that peace doesn't dethrone dictators, pulverize weapons stocks, or deter aggression. Maybe it's not a best-fit for this particular situation.A 6-point plan which professes to be an alternative to war. I’ll be interested to see pro-war people’s take on this.
It amazes me as well how the Anti-War movement has such a funny relationship with minorities and dissent. So the majority of the world's population is opposed to this action. So? I know we could have gone about securing world opinion FAR better than we actually have, but are we more or less right because Angola says so?
They always say to dissent is American, but when America dissents, we're being irresponsible and impudent. They sanctify the minority opinion, but only when they're in that minority.
It’s possible that one day i will stop reading and commenting on friendsfriends entries, but not likely.
