Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think in normal circumstances the "national security" response would go in favour of the one closest to Dr Strangelove. But I wonder if Iraq has changed the perception a bit, especially with oil as expensive as it is.

After all, I know that the tradmed haven't exactly been honest in their reporting but Obama is saying similar things to the US govt about talking, ceasefires and withdrawals, it's McCain that's out on a limb with his "take 'em out in a field and bomb the bastards" schtick.

And I wonder if America is just getting tired of being told that the answer to everything is to invade. It's not working in Afghanistan, it's not worked so well in Iraq and maybe talking sounds like a good idea cos I think a lot of America is kinda sick of going to funerals.

keep to the Fen Causeway
