Yes. 3 Levels removed from declaring a war against one of the largest super powers in the world. Maybe I'm a bit more comforted by that, since I'm not Dr. Strangelove.
First, he's the same guy who repeatedly argues that we are going broke on social services (http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/... ) Click the link, mental illness may ensue... but while we're broke on social issues, we've suddenly got tens of billions to spend (plus American lives) on a conflict that isn't resolved either way just yet.
