Center of Attention
The first link of today’s Center of Attention is to Jon Swift’s post called “Fred Thompson Kicks Gandhi’s Ass”. Thompson and Jon are right: American needs more violence. A little less conversation, a little more action.
(also note at Jon’s place how some people seem to have difficulty understanding the satire)
After reading Jon’s post, go to Andrew Sullivan’s place. Andrew feels he, and the American people, have been lied to by Bush about the surge. 17,500, 30,000 all the same…
Tim F. wrote an interesting post at Balloon Juice. “Senior Justice officials themselves say they still donâ€™t know the entire story about what happened that led to the crisis. Plainly either senior officials know full well the story behind how eight of their US Attorneys got fired, or else we have one of the most dysfunctional Departments of Justice in US history. The message is either a steaming pile of damage control or yet one more indictment of our current government.”
There is an interesting discussion going on at Winds of Change about Sparta(n culture / political system).
Michael J. Totten, the blogosphere’s best original reporter, published another great article about the middle east. To be precise: Erbil, Iraq.
