Mt piece on Hillary, Billy Jeff and the Hive is a “must read” at Lucianne.com today, linking to American Thinker. Nice.
My experience and interest is primarily American history and politics. I know as much as the average bear about world affairs, but claim no special insight. So, for me, it’s good to see two guys who know a lot more in this area than I do — Angelo Codevilla and David P. Goldman — coming out four square for Cruz. Here’s Goldman in PJ Media.
Jonah Goldberg has demanded that we all stop dissing the neocons. Now, I like Jonah. He had the good sense and good fortune to marry a girl from a good Republican family in Fairbanks, Alaska*. Good on him. But the neocons bear a large share of the blame for convincing dimwitted Bush 2 to invade Iraq. They haven’t learned their lesson, and still like to beat the war drum. A pox on them.
We should send American armies into wars only when there is a clear and present danger to our national security. Not to promote democracy. Until these guys acknowledge that their whole Iraq scheme was an enormous mistake, they deserve no quarter.
*Here’s a factoid for you. Fairbanks and its environs are a winter tour destination for newly married Japanese couples. For good luck, they like to make love under the northern lights, and Fairbanks is the place to go.
