A New Plan..Hopefully

I guess you call it the good news and the bad news. Bad news; it took them this long to see their "plan", or lack of it, isn't working. The good news; they may be finally climbing off the dime. While they have continually stressed that only wacky people think this should be more like a police action with investigation and strategic hits instead of a global war, whadda you want to bet that is what they decide?

The review marks the first ambitious effort since the immediate aftermath of the 2001 attacks to take stock of what the administration has called the "global war on terrorism" -- or GWOT -- but is now considering changing to recognize the evolution of its fight. "What we really want now is a strategic approach to defeat violent extremism," said a senior administration official who described the review on the condition of anonymity because it is not finished. "GWOT is catchy, but there may be a better way to describe it, and those are things that ought to be incumbent on us to look at."

Which I believe is the approach they mocked when John Kerry suggested it.

You might be interested to read the latest book (and even earlier ones) by this guy, who seems to have a good explanation of why this is all happening.

I listened to him directly on Coast to Coast the other night...

Extremely interesting what he had to say on the way things are going in general with the PNAC, al Qaeda, etc.

It seems that things will "appear" to flip-flop, in order to increase the current agenda further and further... there will be much, much more to come... more attacks like 9/11 and worse, etc., so we can get back on the "terrorism" paranoia propaganda even worse than with 9/11... in order to gain even more control over the population.

Without terrorism, there is no excuse to bring in i.d. cards, microchips, etc. ... so terrorism's a must for the current powers that be, else they lose control over everyone.

It will be back, with a bigger vengeance. Rest assured. Unfortunately. There will be no flip-flopping as time goes on.

From Bill Maher's final New Rules! of the season,,,

"And finally, New Rule: The people in America who are most in favor of the Iraq war must now go there and fight it. The Army missed its recruiting goal by 42% last month. More people joined the Michael Jackson Fan Club. "We've done picked all the low-lying Lynndie England fruit." And now we need warm bodies. We need warm bodies like Paula Abdul needs...warm bodies!"
