Not that it’ll help, but…
What kind of nation does our flag fly over now? Not a less innocent one, because American innocence was never the truth. Not one less reluctant to go to war without a good reason, because we have foolishly credited bad reasons in the past. But now the nation lacks even that. As our president demonstrated last week, we have become a people who wage unending war -?¢‚Ç¨‚Äù killing and maiming our young ones and theirs -?¢‚Ç¨‚Äù without being remotely able to say why.
…here’s why, dumbass. Not that you’ll manage to grasp the concept this time either, I suppose; not after 9/11 went right over your head, as it seems to have done.
Update! Check with Glenn, Andrew, Tim, and Samizdata for more news on all this; I’m thinking it’d be appropriate to lay off the politicking here for the rest of the day, and just offer my sincerest condolences to all my British friends (and I do have a few, y’know, including Christiana’s mom, who is in London now on business), both Right and Left.
