A typical "excellent" pacifist circle jerk!  At the moment when the  
last redoubt of the organized working class, the autoworkers and their  
union, are under all out assault they talk about--Afghanistan.   As if  
anyone cares,  as if the people of Afghanistan would be any better off  
being killed by Taliban axes rather than US bombs.  And all that  
without even advancing, however futilely, the one policy that would  
make a real difference to the Afghans--legalization of poppy  
production and centralized purchase of their crops at 3x market price.

Correct.  Obama is the new Blairism, not the new McCarthyism  The  
proportion is exact:  Obama is to Reagan as Blair was to Thatcher.   
Obama put it precisely:  "they" want to hit the auto workers  
"disproportionately"  but I will hit them "proportionately."
