Kerrey In "Soon"?
I was thinking he wasn't going to for a while. Now? I'd say more likely he runs than not.
McCain Will Save Us All!
Senator McCain lays out a lot of good ideas to end or mitigate our dependence on foreign oil...I hope he continues to advocate for them once someone else is elected President.
Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?
Huh? US diplomacy? Are we actually going to talk to someone who doesn't already agree with us? (Do we still have to be such #@%&$ about it?)
Seriously, though, good move. God willing, something real will come out of this peace conference. Everyone in their respective countries already hates Bush and Olmert; maybe not caring about what the electorate thinks will free them up to do the right thing and implement a real two-state solution.
You Know, The One in Afghanistan?
We're just "kickin' ass" everywhere aren't we Mr. President?
Too bad we can't supply the forces we need to fight the war against the people who actually attacked us on 9.11.
Seriously? The Taliban? Still? These people should be a distant memory by now not taking and holding territory!
Heckuva job Bushie.
Overall this is probably good news for the US and the (actual) War on al-Qaeda (you know, the one in Afghanistan?).
Not necessarily good news for democracy in the short term though...
I think Musharraf is a very important figure both for us and for the future of Pakistan, I just hope we don't end up with another Mugabe - clinging to power forever at the expense of all else.
Time will tell...
Good News From Iraq (For Real)
Hopefully, this will lessen some of the tensions between the Kurds and Turkey. The PKK is one of the biggest problems in US-Turkey relations and, as one of our only allies in the region, it is important that we try and address their very real concerns about cross border terrorism.

Constitutionally Mandated Primary Schedule?
UVA's own Larry Sabato has a prescription to fix the Presidential primary calender idiocy that has swept the nation. It seems pretty damn complicated but perhaps that is what is needed to fix such a badly broken system.
In my opinion, if the later primary states want their contests to mean something, then maybe they shouldn't all blindly vote for whoever wins Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina. (Again, I cannot believe these are the people who get to decide this.)

HusBand How To: Best Snoring Cure Ever
Friday, September 21, 2007
I've been saying this for a while now: Iraq drains us and inflates China. Terrorism from weak, diffuse, non-state entities is NOT the so-called struggle of our times. It is not the new Cold War. The new Cold War is going to be the old Cold War, but with a more powerful adversary: China.
This isn't about lead paint in toys. They are moving in and we aren't even paying attention.
A Good Start...
It is heartening to see someone high in the Israeli administration saying such sensible things.
Of course, saying and doing are two different things.

Saved By His Own Incompetence
So the economic and social instability created by Robert Mugabe's corruption and incompetence actually HELPS him?
The horrible economy has actually helped reduce the spread of HIV because people cannot afford to have mistresses anymore.
Maybe there is something to the Bush model of totally incompetent government...
Kerrey In, Johanns Cagey.
My guess would be that he will run, which is too bad because he could beat Kerrey.
Hell, even I voted for him once upon a time.

Everyday Is Better Than the Day Before
...when you live in Zimbabwe.
100,000% inflation. I'm reasonably sure that means Monopoly money would literally be worth more than Zimbabwean dollars.
Heckuva job Mugabe!
Chinese Economy Is Burning Too Hot
Even lead-contaminated toys and mercury-contaminated toothpaste can't stop them!
Keep Your Fingers Crossed
(Bashir is, but not in the good way...)
Hopefully China will have the good sense to push the Bashir government to take this seriously.
I wonder what effect this will have on the political future of our (and Osama bin Laden's) old friend Hassan al-Turabi?

Foreign Exchange: Ignore Asia at Our Own Peril
|This is a good episode. The beginning is a harsh independent assessment of the state of Iraq today. |
Fareed's comment at the end is something we should all heed: our misadventures in the Middle East are creating a power vacuum that China is readily stepping into.

Hagel Out. Kerrey In
The good Kerrey that is. Bob not the other guy.
PS: Go Huskers. Fire Callahan.
This points out what I've been thinking for a while...It doesn't matter what we say or do, Iraq WILL be partitioned one way or another. That's just where the momentum in the country lies.
Good for Iran. Bad for Turkey. Bad for the Middle East. Bad for us.
Again, excellent work Bush administration.
