How Many Americans Think

Quote from Maxspeak:

"The Administration's collective negligence reflects a fundamental problem in the way they think. We see this echoed in comic form by the parade of idiot jingo-bloggers. They all think international security is a matter of military force, rather than politics. When military force gives way to political realities, hard-liners console themselves with the thought that it was just a matter of insufficient use of force. They think the role of the Secretary of State is to distract everyone with bullsh*t as a cover for the use of force. No. What a policy needs most is legitimacy and consensus. Then you can get away with murder. They don't get it. They are not fit to rule."

I think this quote nails it. You hear this line a lot when jingos discuss Vietman. They don't get that you don't use nuclear weapons because this would have political ramifications!?!
