The U.S. has begun it's "Shock and Awe" attack on Baghdad. Seems that the point is not to blow things up - we're blowing stuff up, but it's not the point. The point is to scare everybody in Iraq. Apparently if you are a superpower, using terror as a weapon is okay-fine.

What I am still waiting (hoping?) for is the explanation for all of this. Why have we gone to war - I mean really why. Even the Bush junta has never been able to make up its mind or give us a good lie. First it was regime change, then it was disarming, then it was liberating the Iraqs, then it was regime change again. None of these ever seemed genuine and I'm wondering how long it's going to be before it's possible to look back and say "Ah! That's what they were up to!"

Haven't you been paying attention? We went to war because Hussein has nukes-- um, no wait, because he has chemical--um, no, it was to restore order-- no wait, I remember now it was because he's a bad guy-- all I know for sure is, now Is Not The Time To Question Der President.

What an idiot. Would you like Hussain back to give him the chance to prove you jerks wrong?

Actually, what I would really like to see is policy that has some connection to reality. Maybe if we focused on actually catching Bin Laden? Oh, wait, that's right, we are "not really concerned about him now".
