"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Russian Hostages are Beheaded

For those who feel if the United States just backed out of this war and everything would just be ‘back to normal’ again (whatever back to normal means), you might want to take note of this.

This is a prime example of wanting things "back to normal." The only time travel we are capable of is toward the future; so there are no better days to go back to. Besides, those good old days of the Clinton era that so many on the Left pine for weren't so "good," we were just ignorant; which appears to be how the Left likes it.

From Blue Star Chronicles:
Jihadists have beheaded the Russian Embassy workers they kidnapped earlier this month. They filmed the beheadings, of course, and the film is available for viewing on the internet.
