    I'd noticed it too, but it's nice to see the observation fleshed out in a diary by a well-recognized diarist that happens to be sitting at the top of the rec list. This is huge. It signals an end to the posturing, the kabuki and the shadow-boxing that has characterized our Middle East policy for longer than I've been alive.

    [F]or too many, the cruelty of our system is part of its appeal. - eightlivesleft
