    some good points made about the changes in our news media. And I think John McCain has officially gone mad.

    "For Rosenthal, the reaction was expected and profoundly misplaced, especially the criticism that a withdrawal of American troops would lead to bloody civil war: 'The spin from the right now is that we are aiding and abetting a genocide... but the fact is that what's happening in Iraq is not going to be a consequence of America leaving, it is going to be a consequence of the American invasion of Iraq in the first place."

    This is at best half true. But to act as if withdrawl doesn't present its own set of consequences (independent of the invasion) is absurd and immoral.

    As I said in another thread, the predictable outcomes of withdrawl include possible genocide and regional conflagration. Another is the propaganda victory for the terrorists and the pro-war crowd who can then shift the blame and guilt (if they were capable of having any) onto the anti-war movement for stabbing the military in the back and choosing Bush Derangement Syndrome over victory. The New York Times ought to know by now how these sociopaths think and operate.

    Actually, Iraq's the only area where McCain makes any sense.

    The spin going on from the left (and those who carry their water in the media, which is to say, the vast majority of the media) is that his position on Iraq is what's doing him in (as far as the election goes), but that's grossly inaccurate. His role in pushing amnesty doomed him utterly.
