I have the feeling that the future is imminent. The pace, volume and variety of war rumors and comments increase weekly. Here in Washington, in pro-war circles there is a nasty story going about that Colin Powell is trying to veto the president's war plans with the threat of resignation (and some sort of implicit racial backlash that would ensue).

"... immediate policy must demonstrate that a terrorist challenge . . . produces catastrophic consequences for the perpetrators, as well as their supporters, tacit or explicit."
This is the only effective means to stop terrorism. As long as the victims play "fair" by using measured responses, the terrorism will continue. The responses must do something far greater than maintaining a status quo. The responses must be catastrophic to the perpetrators
Cool cartoon - and I agree with most of the post as well. The inevitability of our middle eastern assimilation grows more clear every day. The world can either like it and help, or hate it and shut the hell up while staying out of our way.

Mr. Kissinger's entire career as statesman and scholar on the inviolability of the nation-state (and as a result, his opposition to pre-emptive war). In this article, he kicks over his world-historic career principle, and endorses just for Iraq pre-emption.
It wouldn't be pre-emption if it were proven that Mohammed Atta indeed met with a deputy of Saddam Hussein (as has been claimed by Czech intelligence) or if Saddam Hussein has any connections with the anthrax attack. It would be response.
