A Firm Hand on the Ship of State 

Just today's news:

Bush resists major course change in Iraq

Bush plans consultations over Iraq strategy

U.S. Rethinks Strategy to Cut Iraqi Violence

Bush to Consult on Changing Iraq Tactics

Nearly 6 years as Commander-in-Chief. Still doesn't know the difference between tactics and strategy.

This is the price we pay for electing an idiot (or rather, letting his slick fixers steal 2 elections from the American people).

UPDATE -- Friday night. This just in: Wait for it . . .

Bush: I won't change strategy in Iraq

Party on!

UPDATE -- Saturday. If you're interested, Larry Johnson provides a nice little tutorial on strategy vs. tactics in Iraq.

A certain hopelessness 

Just when I was thinking that things were looking up for America, Billmon noticed the Riverbend has posted once again from Iraq, and reminds us we are all responsible for that holocaust which worsens each and every day.

The Last Full Measure 

Perhaps you saw the news. A Navy SEAL in Iraq fell on an incoming grenade, saving the lives of his teammates.

Regardless of my feelings about the war, I am still an old soldier. I served with some outstanding people. They are friends and heroes, too.

And I believe we must always honor our heroes, even (perhaps especially) when we hate the war.

Phil Carter discusses that kind of heroism. And Phil, welcome back. It's good to have you home again.
