This link to Nik’s journal may need to be diseminated more widely. Essentially some conservative fruitcake is arguing:

a. George W. Bush is unpopular for making ‘wise’ choices then he should be made President-for-Life (or at least a third term — which may be the same thing);

b. If Iraq is going to continue to be bad guys then their nation-state should be nuked until they comply with the Emperor of the Free World’s ‘wisdom’.

America’s current leaders seem to want to make it the Assyria of the modern age; the instrument of a military/industrial god.
