Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've just seen the second Republican debate (watch it here) and it was such a desastrous display of crazy idiots without a clue that it shocked me way more than I thought it could. Whoever said they would torture suspects most brutally got the most applause. Only one candidate thought that US foreign policy might have had something to do with 9/11. And they seem to believe what they're saying, so it's even worse than in the final years of the Soviet Union.
In the end, I was only waiting to hear this sentence: "We are determined to defend our life with all means without consideration for whether the surrounding world sees the necessity for this fight or not." Because, as you might know, the next sentence was "Thus, Total War is now required."

/ in case that doesn't ring a bell.

"If you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles." Sun Tzu
