Now. . .  Back to the Real World

Investors Business Daily editorial cartoonist Michael Ramirez

Update: Charles Krauthammer simply writes some of the best op-ed published today. Here's an article, "Young Hamlet's Agony," posted on 9 Oct 2009 at the Washington Post where he writes about the 2008-campaigning Democrats' disengenuous, "perfectly cynical" posture of "Iraq war bad, Afghan war good"  misleading policy. Krauthammer writes: But now, unfortunately, they must govern. No more games. No more pretense.

[General] McChrystal was emphatic in his recommendation: To go any other way than counterinsurgency would lose the war. Yet his commander in chief, young Hamlet, frets, demurs, agonizes. His domestic advisers, led by Rahm Emanuel, tell him if he goes for victory, he'll become LBJ, the domestic visionary destroyed by a foreign war. His vice president holds out the chimera of painless counterterrorism success.

Excellent reading.
