Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
To go back to the topic of the diary...

America IS 300 million people, many things but not homogenous and certainly not represented by a government which is at this very minute deciding to IGNORE the will of the people and of Congress and escalate the war in Iraq.

What is going to be done about that?

What can be done about it?  

We marched in the streets and that didn't stop him.
We took control of Congress and that didn't stop him.
The Democrats have stated they will not support a surge, and are preparing legislation to stop funding for a surge, and that will not stop him.

Bloody revolution?  Good luck selling that to the majority who want to end the bloodshed.

Vigilance and 2008 are my best answers.
