Nothing to Do, But Pray:Okay, so I thought, I'd write this dramatic post about being at war, but in the end there's not much to be done. Despite all the protests and diplomacy we are at war. Those of us who are against this action lost. All we can do now is pray that this ends quickly with few deaths.
What we can do now is make sure the peace is just. Nicholas Kistof makes the case that we need to Arabize this victory. That not only makes sense, but it's good policy. Having an American viceroy is only going to feed the suspicions of many that we are staging some kind of new imperialism and as history shows, never lasts. Plus having a colony not far from the holy places of Isalm will only fan the flames of nuts like bin Laden. Will Bush and Co. listen to this advice? I doubt it.
