'… America’s Singular Role in the Course of Human Events'

capitol"We arouse and arrange our memories to suit our psychic needs." -Michael Kammen, Columbus in History-

If George W. Bush could attest to his mission from God Almighty to invade Iraq-- 'I'm driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, "George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan." And I did, and then God would tell me, "George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq." And I did.

Sacred Mantras

Palestinian StateThe Palestinians are planning something thoroughly obnoxious: they intend to apply to the UN for statehood.

Why obnoxious? Any Israeli spokesman (not to mention spokeswoman) will tell you readily: because it is a “unilateral” move. How dare they proclaim a state unilaterally? How dare they do so without the consent of the other party to the conflict - us?
