164. Very insightful....
Tweedledee and Tweedledumb make up foreign policy as they go along. It's funny how Blair sees himself as ineffectual, and Bush paints the world according to black/white color-by-numbers on who's right and who's wrong. Actually, it's not funny ... it's pretty damn frightening. It's all about puppetry and pulling strings with these buffoons. Juan Cole rocks ... perceptive commentary from him at that link.
