Walking in the Reign

A NYTimes article today makes it very clear that Barack Obama, like Hillary Clinton , isn't at all against the belligerent, bossy and inevitably murderous sort of foreign policy that has defined the US from the beginning. He's just against the Bush brand of it.

Do people really see this "we're bombing the wrong country -- we should be going after Pakistan/The Taliban/South Korea, etc. " doctrine as an alternative to Bush? Do people believe that this doctrine is so much better because it uses the UN and tosses around the word 'diplomacy'? The Dems talk a lot about diplomacy, but if history is any indication, mostly they mean dictating agreements to propped-up 'friendly' regimes that are barely even friendly.

When you're as big and as dangerous a country as the United States -- the only country to use nuclear weapons on people, and you say "if President Musharraf won't act, we will", you're warmongering. Plain and simple. Now close your mouth, 'cause you're cold busted!
