The quagmire continues...

Will upcoming "democratic elections" be the beginning of the end for American involvement in the Iraq/Middle East quagmire? Of course not. In the latest New Yorker, Seymour Hersh (to my mind, the best and most reliable of journalists for the past 35-40 years) quotes a former high-level U.S. intelligence official:
"This is a war against terrorism, and Iraq is just one campaign. The Bush Administration is looking at this as a huge war zone. Next, we're going to have the Iranian campaign. We've declared war and the bad guys, wherever they are, are the enemy. This is the last hurrah -- we've got four years, and want to come out of this saying we won the war on terrorism."
Ah, yes... "Perpetual war for perpetual peace," after all.

You can find Hersh's excellent/nightmarish article, "The Coming Wars," right here.
