War is Peace

Tom Engelhardt points out, in case you hadn't noticed it, that indeed, War is Peace.

Or, you might say, more war means, somehow a better peace, McChrystal want 40,000 more troops for Afghanistan, 1,000 more troops are going to Iraq, and the war drums are upping it a notch for an attack on Iran, which means, of course, war.

I still can't believe that the US (or Israel for that matter) is stupid enough to launch an attack on Iran. The drumbeats are part of a push for sanctions, the Russians and Chinese don't want an attack on Iran either, but the danger remains that they might call our bluff this time, and leave 'no other choice'.

It looks like things are heating up again, and the lunatics are still in charge of the asylum.
