Eigenlijk kan een mens volstaan met Fafblog om de politiek in de VS te verstaan. Medium Lobster vandaag:
The notion of a “global test” – which John Kerry describes as “where your countrymen, your people understand fully why you’re doing what you’re doing, and you can prove to the world that you did it for legitimate reasons,” and which the Medium Lobster can only conclude means the full and complete consensus of every petty bureaucrat in France – flies in the face of everything the United States stands for, and everything America needs to defend itself.
Fortunately, George W. Bush recognizes this, and has embraced an altogether different test – not a global test, not a local test, not even a personal or a singular test. When George W. Bush goes to war, he will not be dissuaded by the protestations of the United Nations, or by some antiwar protesters, or by the State Department, or by the CIA, or by the military, or by the overwhelming conclusions of the intelligence community, or by the American people. Indeed, he will not be dissuaded by his own campaign promises, or his own thoughts and feelings from the week before, or even the minute before.
