Maybe you should learn to use HTML. I'm confused by your post. You don't seem to be getting my point.

He has approached this tragedy like it's an election campaign, trying to build a political consensus for war. What he doesn't understand is that the consensus is already there, and he needs to use it productively.

This isn't true, what I was decrying.

Bull***t. Iran and Pakistan are 'allies' only in the sense that they have something we need now. We have to work on them, gain their cooperation -- or threaten it.

The last part was an obvious joke.

If I understood the context correctly, I believe "political concensus" meant a concensus among American people.

That's my point, that that is a stupid point. He has that consensus, duh.

Threats and fear are poor motivation tools, and ones with short lifespans.

OOOOOOOH something we can all applaud. Got any proof? Who said what, who the hell cares. Let's slam Bush. Oh, yeah. Clinton sucked too.

This just in, this thread sucks.
