"...public opinion deserves to be respected as well as despised" G.W.F. Hegel, 'Philosophy of Right'

a neo-con maze « Previous | |Next »
November 25, 2006

For the neocons the US and its allies are at war with Islamic fascists who will use any means to destroy those of us who love freedom. On the neo-con account the extremist views of the Koran (gives us Islamic), and the goal of seeing authoritarianism imposed at the state level by force (gives us fascism). The pairing of the two words conveys a precise message: The old fascism is back, but it is now driven by a radical fundamentalist creed of Islam in the form of a jihad against the West.

Things seem to have gone a little awry in the fight against "Islamic fascism" in Iraq where the freedom warriors have to make their stand amidst chaos for those who love freedom.

The Coalition cannot even secure the Green Zone in Baghdad from the warring Suni and Shii'te factions with their shifting alliances that oten contest the authority of the Iraqi state.

Howard's foreign policy has meant that Australia is caught up in yet another "nightmare" of a "massive foreign intervention" in a country far from our shores.

Gary, do you know that the images don't work in the RSS feed any more? I like the images in my RSS feeds :)

Mark,
all that I can think of is that I'm currently having a portal developed and this may have changed things. I'll pass the issue along to tech support for them to have a look at.
