"A Messianic Vision"

And no, unfortunately, I'm not talking about the "Jesus of Nazareth" rerun on TNT this week.

This is a recent New Yorker article on Bush's new Mission Unaccomplished. Iran. I'd say it's a scary article, but more accurate would be "scarily familiar." (I found it via ThisIsNotOver.com - if you don't mind my politics, you'll like it.)

To paraphrase: Bush isn't waiting for diplomacy to change the government of an unstable Middle East nation; he's steamrolling the efforts of an international governing body; and there's a fantastically adept terrorist organization just salivating for the chaos.

Because it all worked out so well the last time.
