I wanna believe, I wanna believe but I hesitate. You see I remember Dubya. He campaigned against Clinton's bombing and nation building. Yet he appointed Cheney and the war die was cast with the New American Century. Arab countries were 'doable' and oil would pay for it. But a Dubya expression has been turned around now it's 'They are killing us over here, because we are killing them over there'.

The neo-cons wanted war and they succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. We want to take out one arab country at a time - Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Iran in the wings. Will they accept that or engage Israel at some point. There seems to no political leaders willing to take us from war, grinding us weaker and weaker - 'they are chicken' - 'other countries will see us as weak' - 'they're killing their own people' - they're using weapons of mass destruction - 'isolationist' - 'remember 1939' - the beat goes on.

Go Cruz, go Paul. As your ideas ascend, you are going to be branded nuts. I want you to be successful before the country crashes.

"Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity. "

What does this mean? War for oil?
