America’s enemies understand deeply and intuitively that nothing at stake in the Middle East–no U.S. war aims or resources anywhere in the region–is remotely as important as Israel. Why can’t American leaders figure this out?
If anyone wonders why many Americans are shaking teabags at the American titled classes, their catered academies of arts and sciences and their lapdog elite politicians like Delaware grandee Mike Castle, look no further than today’s fetid festivities at the Heinz headquarters in Pittsburgh.
Catch, for example, the September issue of Wired–the lustrous eye-blasting pink one with the Chris Anderson-Michael Wolff graffiti declaring “The Web is Dead.” Nearby on the newsstand you can see Scientific American trumpet “the end” in the same shockingly hot infrared tones, canceling time itself (gasp!) by “crunch”, “whimper”,” rip”, “freeze” or “lurch” and incinerating earth by runaway global warming, all presumably in at least one of the innumerable multiple parallel universes trumpeted in recent issues as a substitute for Gd.
