Pessimism, that's the Ticket
CNN detects a (slight) uptick in support for the Iraq War in wake of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's close encounter with a 500 pound bomb. But a majority of Americans still think that the war was a mistake. And the majority of Americans would be right. But don't just take my word for it. Political Animal highlights some pessimism from Richard Holbrook. Holbrook was UN ambassador under Clinton, and will be Secretary of State under some future Democratic President. In other words someone who does this crap for real (This crap being US Foriegn Policy). So when he says that Iraq is worse than Vietnam, that is some grade-A world class pessimism.
