I recently visited Obama's birthplace and came across these in a store and just had to have them.

Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Obama's Middle East policy is a total clusterfuck:
http://www.ibtimes.com/pentagon-approve ... ds-2328138
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

The Foreign Military Sales system was criticized Tuesday by a prominent Air Force general and last week by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who both said the slow process to buy weapons was pushing potential overseas customers to buy from Russia instead. Not only does that mean less revenue for U.S. defense companies, it can mean that U.S. forces have to work with their allies using different weapons and communications systems on the battlefield.
Just read that over and over to appreciate what drives American foreign policy.

Y'know, Eisenhower's farewell address—the military-industrial complex speech—deserves to be up there with the Gettysburg Address, Lincoln's 2nd Inaugural, and Washington's Farewell address as vital presidential statements. It captures and predicts the rot of empire so succinctly.

That gives me the same creepy feeling as Truman saying he slept soundly after ordering the atomic bombings. In a way, it makes me appreciate the fact that Lyndon Johnson and Robert McNamara were haunted and plagued by their decisions in Vietnam—they were still morally culpable, but at least there was a sense that they weren't so divorced from the implications of their actions.

Right, exactly! It's that cold abstraction, of denying any kind of humanity to the people who were killed. It's the kind of stuff that the Frankfurt intellectuals wrote about as the dark side of the Enlightenment—stripping away uniqueness into bland, quantified components. Once you deny any kind of unique value to life, that it is just another resource, it's easy enough to manipulate, mangle, and murder. I'm haunted by so much relatively minor stuff that I've done and not done in my life; how do these people function? I'm quite serious here: how do you order the deaths of thousands of people and not be plagued by guilt and a sense of sin?
