52. Fundamentalism wasn't a Rovian creation. But he uses it to score
percentage points in elections. Israel/Palestine is also not his creation. Neither is it the neocons. Their creation was the slow war in Iraq. With no easy solution. Slow and long and painfull. In terms of hawks.. the wheat separated from the chaff (more like chaff separated from the wheat).

Are you saying Joe Lieberman is not a wedge? Cause really..Rove has a long standing pattern of targeting certain Dem leaders (of a certain narrow group..ie Texas)for flipping..and a few Dems will follow. That is his pattern. Are you saying he stopped using that pattern? Even Bill Clinton says that these issues, which Joe Lieberman cannot help but vote his soul on in a hawkish way,.. are not issues that he started or has had control over...just issues he is left to deal with.


In Assassin's Gate..the author goes into the neocon plan for remaking the middle east. Something about starting one war that leads to many other small ones.. where the radical islam lines up on one side and democracies on the other. Turning the ME black or white.

People can only handle so much. So push them all to the hilt and the group breaks apart. And Rove can pick up the pieces.

Why else would Melmann say "Today,We are all Israelis". Is that an appropriate statement? Was Israel attacked today? NOPE! When people use that statment is it not to express solidarity with a nation shocked by attack or trauma suddenly? Yes. So why three weeks in? Why now..Friday are we all Israelis? Statements like that are meant to divide. They are wedges in and of themselves.

All fun times for mystics and their patsies. While the victims on the ground cry every day, weep the loss of a loved one, suffer more and more psychological damage, and have their lives diminished one more time.

But if it makes for more power for the ones who want more power in the USA... for their narrow elite base.. it is fine and dandy and should be continually acted upon with relish and joy. Afterall - it is just another day - another war... a few more % points of the Democratic vote. What fun. They love the smell of napalm in the morning.
