"I'm still amazed at the degree to which the American press and punditocracy, even in the liberal wing, and including it's junior league in blogistan, can spend so much time debating the usefulness and value of the antiwar American left -often attacking it as being made up of "19 year old anarchists, old quakers and Trotskyites"- when as far as American policy is concerned, the majority of the citizens of the planet seem to agree with its position. And the liberals who are suspicious of our government's 'analysis' feel forced by their own squeamish impotence to look to the Realist school of the American right for confirmation of their doubts, the Realists being the group that more than any other does not care what foreigners think of us unless they pose a danger to what they consider our interests.
I am more interested in the philosophical 'realism' of the members of the european populace who are shaking their heads in disbelief. This is not a debate over farm policy, but over the proposed invasion -proposed apparently by idiots- of a country in the most contested region on the face of the earth.
This debate is shameful."
