The brains behind the war.
I don't know how to respond to this stupidity. Can I say Shock and Awe
I quoted Pollack a couple of months ago, when I heard him asked, on NPR, about the possible effect on Pakistan of an invasion of Iraq: "I can't respond to that. I don't know the first thing about Pakistan" What business does he have making arguments about international policy if he denies knowing anything outside his specialty? And Kristol adds: "The Europeans sometimes make it seem as if we're about to invade Madagascar" Say what!? 
These idiots don't understand a goddamn thing. Since when does arrogance and wishful thinking pass for political wisdom? This makes Vietnam seem like an honest mistake. I wonder how the American people will feel when they see Baghdad in ashes. Will they sound like the Germans after Auschwitz? We didn't know. What could we do? "Harlan Ullman, the military strategist who apparently developed the plan, last week characterized the Baghdad assault thusly: 'You have this simultaneous effect, rather like the nuclear weapons of Hiroshima, not taking days or weeks but minutes.' "
