Miscellaneous meanderings and philosophical ramblings. The title from a spiral notebook I used to jot down my thoughts on religion and other matters some years ago. I like to write, think and express my views on various issues. Robust discussion is welcome.

If you feel the ground shaking...

It's just Orwell spinning in his grave. Consider John Kerry's response to the President's speech regarding Iraq.

This debate is not about an artificial timetable for withdrawal. It is about setting a timetable for success.

yeah, duh

Like the President and our military are hoping for defeat. However, this victory will be decided by conditions on the ground, not by dates. If Kerry doesn't get that point by now, then it's a good thing he's not in the military any longer and that he is not commander in chief. Simply removing the word artificial does not change what setting dates means. Do we ignore conditions on the ground and leave because we set a date? If the answer is no we stay until conditions are right to leave, then there is no point in setting a date. If the answer is yes, we leave, then the withdrawal is indeed artificially determined. Simplistic attempts at clever word-smithing do not change this. Kerry seems to have learned the wrong lessons from Orwell's 1984 let alone Vietnam.
