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.' "
