Quote notes (#28)

Some  ‘who-whom’ sense from Andrew C. McCarthy:

To me, the shrieking over weapons of mass destruction is the international version of the Left’s domestic campaign against guns, and of a piece with its trendy revulsion against land- and sea-mines. This is the delusion that discord is caused by the song, not the singer.

(Yes, sorry, it’s from the National Review, but it’s right.)

    It’s not looking good for Team Obama in Congress right now. Maybe some better false flag ops in the next couple weeks?

    I read “Willful Blindness”. And a few of his columns. He can’t quite internalize despite endless agonizing and the conclusion in his own words start to finish that the best things Lawyers should do in war is BE SILENT and the next best thing is to run massive and relentless interference for the warrior.

    The defects, distortions and Talmud on meth logic are endless as a result.

    As soon as you touched it, you broke it. But being Lawyers will never own it.

    “Why is Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons worse than the rebels’ use of al-Qaeda?”

    good point.

    Differentiating between “rebels” and “Al-Qaeda” is a fool’s errand.

    I think that’s his point.

    Can you use yourself though? I admit that might be “splitting hairs”. Like Syria, the driving force is Western Intelligence/Resources, supplemented with regional support (hello Saudi Bin Ladens), utilizing the supranational mercenary force known as Al Qaeda. As any nation has its disgruntled minorities, those actual participatory nationals are irrelevant to the actual conflict.

    McCarthy’s consistent in his aversion to Islamists. I don’t think he fetishizes Al Qaeda (except as a lawyerly way of referencing 9/11).

    Indeed, might as well follow the rabbit hole all the way down.
