end of the affair

It's time to worry. To be very very concerned. America in decline is never a good thing. And make no mistake. America is moving groundwards right now. For the forseeable future too. From the moment they invaded Iraq, this was coming. That illegal, immoral and hugely impractical conflict is unleashing so many forces beyond the control of any of us. A war with no purpose launched by a liberal superpower that claims to be good. Enemies are salivating. Bad men in rocky defiles are priming their pistols and loosening the rhetorical purse-strings. Alienated young fellows in morally empty circumstances are finding their mettle. And some Semtex. No one holds sway over the good guys. This is no time to celebrate.
