Well here we are elections weekend in Iraq. Can the Iraqis handle it? The liberation of the Iraqi people was a Neo-con rationale for going into Iraq and indeed this would seem to be the opportunity of a millennium for the Iraqis.
At the same time, the Neocons can’t seem to work out of the Big Blurry of the who-what-when and where of the war on terror. Not to be left out, liberals don’t seem to realize the new paradigm train has left the station and they’re on it, like it or not. Things will never be again as they were prior to 9/11, no matter what reason was given for the war on terror.
