Some odds and ends while you slept overnight.. Middle East and Iraq stuff.

Condi Rice says “creativity is needed for Mideast Peace”. Well, that rules out the Bush administration having any role in Middle East Peace Talks then. Is it also a surprise when she says “she did not carry a specific plan with her to the region.”? Has the Bush administration had ANY plans for that area…ever???… since it came to office?

Also, this blog-piece on the surge scenario in Iraq in my opinion did not get seen by enough people when it got posted Saturday morning by JJ at her site, so I’m re-linking to it again, because as I said over there, its one of the more thoughtful essays I’ve seen from a blogger on this topic. Pretty depressing reading, perhaps, but the internal struggle and trying to make sense of the situation, I can relate to.

Good piece here at Lemon Chicken and Lawn Signs that also didnt get a lot of blog-time either, talking about anonymous bloggers and his exasperation at them. I posted a little counter in the comments that sometimes, anonymity is needed.

    Ah yes, if only we could turn to the enlightened and wisened voices of the Sean Penns and Naomi Kleins of the world: the misplaced-Jordanites would be given control of 94.8% of the earth’s surface, and we could have peace. Well, for a week at least until they worried some Jew might be alive and happy in north Texas and demand it as well. Still would be four days longer than the peace resulting from the “historic” accords Clinton foisted on the region.
