Friction can be a drag

In the interests of free speech…just make it interesting

Firstly I’d like to offer my appreciation for how everyone has completely ignored the idiotic smoking post. I imagine we probably have as many smokers as non-smokers, but at least the rest of us have some little intelligence about our vices.

Secondly, there is a debate at the very bottom of this blog which has now entered the realm of the hypothetical.

What should the US and Britain do about Iraq. Should they go home, go hard, or go long? And what will the middle east look like in the scenario you propose?

Some would say it would be victory by the Islamo Fascists… surely not really all that different from the current victory of the Western supported Facsists regimes in Egypt and Saudi. and the Quasi dictatorial states of Kuwait, Turkey, and Israel (at least for certain proportions of the populations).

Nevertheless, if America = good, then killing even innocents in the name of America is surely also good. Hmm, sounds rather suspect and quasi-religious. I don’t think we need to wonder if the atheist, secular, and democratic creed is capable of as much fanatical our might = right to kill as religion.
