bittorent writes thoughtfully on buzzmachine about the Administrations’ excuse of warring in Iraq to spread democracy.
I always think ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy’ should begin at home. Check out voting machines. It really is true that Americans have no sense of irony! A President who stole the election, spreading ‘democracy’? It is laughable.
As of yesterday’s press announcement, it is no longer “stay the course”, just gitterdun. Americans, wake up and smell the coffins.
Speaking of which, A Nation of Sheep was written by William J. Lederer (co-author of the Ugly American) in 1961 forwarning of Vietnam. His fearless reporting on American foreign policy is worth reading today.
