Sad to see another former Marine turn himself into a joke.p>While General Zinni was “planning” in the '90s, his bosses halved the U.S. Army. Build partnerships with the EU and UN? Maybe we should have joined in with their courageous actions to stop genocides in Yugoslavia and Rwanda. Generals who speak political nonsense make themselves look particularly foolish. br> — Chris B. /p> p> Thanks for your clarification of General Zinni’s inept views. Now we know the truth. We DID TOO plan intelligently for the realities of a post-hostilities Iraq. We had more than enough troops on the ground there to establish and maintain order, and all this stuff about the Sunnis and Shias not getting along turned out to be just a Baghdad urban legend. Or was it Fallujah. I forget. Whatever. So post-Saddam peace now reigns over there just as the Bush Administration planned it and Democracy is beginning to work there just about as well as it does here, give or take one or two Mexican Nationalist Demonstrations. And wasn’t Condi Rice received so well recently in Sharialand? She really got those guys working together now. What nerve of that guy Zinni! And after General Garner got all the lights back on and Paul Bremer handed out all those Boy Scout leaflets and George Bush posed on the aircraft carrier. Mission Accomplished, baby! The West really CAN TOO show the East how to live. Glad you cleared all that up. br> — Gene Wright br> Laguna Niguel, California /p>

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
