TiltWhen I look at the "international community" - ie, the whole global octopus of world-news production, but principally the State Department and the journalism-education-NGO complex - in the light of early 2011, what I see more than anything is what poker players call tilt.
At every turn, the international community (which consists, in reality, of a large number of very capable, even responsible, professionals) is full well aware that it both has screwed, and continues to screw, the pooch. And at every turn, it figures that since it's in so deep already, it might as well go ahead and try to finish its wad. Hence, bombs over Libya. Bombs? Troops! As my ex-girlfriend from Carolina once put it, I hain't had so much fun since hogs et my little brother. And I fear we are just getting started in the Middle East. -- Unqualified Reservations: A small segue of subject
