[Sorry... one more. I'm also employing an idea from BLDGBLOG by not including a title for quick thoughts of this nature. We'll see how that works out.]

Evolution of the Bush Doctrine from Frontline's excellent The War Behind Closed Doors, first aired in 2003.

This will hopefully all be history soon, but we can't get out of a situation without understanding how we got into it. If you haven't had a chance to watch this program, it's one of the most captivating experiences you can have in front of a television.

Richard Perle makes for an extremely well educated and well spoken Sith Lord. Neoconservatism is a very legitimate political philosophy and a refreshingly intellectual change from the social conservatism of the rotting corpse formerly known as Jesse Helms. Neoconservatism's main flaw was that it, well... it's totally flawed to the core, and we've had six - arguably twenty-eight years to test it - at imeasurable expense in terms of human life, the integrity of our nation, and the future stability of the world.
