Node Of Evil - Fair And Balanced Reporting

For those who feel the war on terrorism
could use a little "Structural Adjustment".

Hey all, here's something that's vitally important -- the U.N. aid program in Palestine is close to running out of funds. Please take a minute to donate something to help the Palestinian refugees. You can donate here. More information about the program can be found here.

Giving Thanks

Quoting Hendrik Hertzberg:

'. . . It has been obvious for some time that, as President of the United States, George W. Bush is in very far over his head. He does not know how to use power wisely. He will now have a Democratic Congress to restrain him, and, perhaps, to protect him—and us—from his unfettered impulses. This may not be the Thanksgiving he was looking forward to, but the rest of us have reason to be grateful.'

I haven't posted for awhile, quite frankly too much has been in play politically in the U.S. for me to say anything useful about the "war on terrorism". Or definitively -- with Congress now changing hands and Bush II stuck with that for his last two years in office it's time to welcome the twilight of the GWOT. And that, perhaps, is the only thing I can put forth with any degree of confidence; that the current strategy for fighting terrorism is at an end. And good riddance. One thing that I hope drops with the new year will be the silly rhetorical phrases which have been employed for framing the debate in the U.S. over what to do about terrorism. Bush may use them now and then (he still is, after all, everything that Hertzberg says he is and more), but they'll no longer hold sway on the national discussion as they have in the past. So, what will the next evolution of the fight against terrorism look like? If it's based on decent policy decisions, then this blog will have outlived its usefulness. I certainly hope so, as there are issues more important than terrorism to deal with. I won't stop blogging, but hopefully this place will need a makeover. Let us all hope that the Democrats deliver on the promise of their recent victories.
