When the whip comes down

St Louis is a terrible place.

It’s good that the medievalists have been prevented from carrying out their genocide.

Experts say the internet is not expanding fast enough. Delete all cat pix and everything will be copacetic.

I miss Mosaic.

Nothing says Cape Cod like Emack & Bolio’s.

Back in the I.R.A.Q.

Presumably the “You break it, you buy it” policy is operative.

I mean the USA “broke” Iraq and is responsible for the consequences. Obviously, the USA had no business breaking it in the first place. Nonetheless, a degree of responsibility ensues. How much responsibility now rests with Iraq is up for discussion. Staying out completely is probably not a reasonable option. Don’t think other parties won’t fill the breach (namely, Iran).

The sad fact of the matter is that it’s better to back an el-Sisi than a Morsi or al-Maliki. Talk of the return of Ahmed Chalabi is a joke. He is a proven liar, like his media flak Judith Miller.
