Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Right now the feature film on the screen is the presidential race, with dingbats like Bolton maneuvering in the aisles,  but my primary interest is in Obama's lack of control over this. I still say, if they push it big time, it's a no-win for him, and in a big way. I don't think the big payoff here is only more access to military contracts- they had that sewed up long ago. It's discrediting Obama.

Look at today's papers. They are pushing the "Act of War" meme hard. This seems too stupid for words, but just look at the current GOP poll leader! Missile defense at the dining room, dear lord.

Capitalism searches out the darkest corners of human potential, and mainlines them.
