I will be in town from March 18-25.
I'll work up my itinerary over the next week or so. Per day it won't be much more detailed than "visit Trafalgar square and wander around" but I do need at least that. Say, is there some website that details all the club /concert goings on in London?
Iraq civil war
Finally, Rummy is starting to adopt my rhetoric! He's not quite there yet, as he can't drop the utopian vision we were sold three years ago:
There's always been a potential for a civil war. That country was held together through a repressive regime that put hundreds of thousands of human beings into mass graves.
Now that the fantasy of a secular and democratic Iraq is fading away, the "expectations management" is underway. If Bush wants support for the war to go on much longer, he better hope for some sort of oil shock - a fundamental threat to American lifestyles is the only cheap shot emotional bait Bush has left. A quick mission shift to defense of the oil fields and infrastructure will be labeled as "a matter of grave national security" - and given the all too human shortsightedness of American policymaking, that will be an accurate statement. Rummy will say "because of Iran and other terrorists, our plans for Iraq have failed. And we were really there to protect the oil all along." That last statement will be included if gas is up around $5 a gallon.
It's all been said, so I'll just add that his performance in game 6 of the 91 series followed by Jack Morris' performance in game 7 stand as the best back to back individual performances in world series history.
