Unreality and the right
Here's something you won't see everyday. George Will agrees with John Kerry.
Cooperation between Pakistani and British law enforcement (the British draw upon useful experience combating IRA terrorism) has validated John Kerry's belief (as paraphrased by the New York Times Magazine of Oct. 10, 2004) that "many of the interdiction tactics that cripple drug lords, including governments working jointly to share intelligence, patrol borders and force banks to identify suspicious customers, can also be some of the most useful tools in the war on terror." In a candidates' debate in South Carolina (Jan. 29, 2004), Kerry said that although the war on terror will be "occasionally military," it is "primarily an intelligence and law enforcement operation that requires cooperation around the world."Too bad he didn't figure that out while Kerry was running in 04. But at least it seems the conservative intelligensia are "getting" it now. You can't bomb terrorism away. If only the goose-stepping Bush supporters could see past their blind hatred and chest thumping militarism to get to the same reality, we might stand a chance on actually winning against the terrorists.
