John Derbyshire:
It seems that Obama is no better acquainted with the Law of Unintended Consequences than was his predecessor. Current U.S. geostrategic thinking seems to be: If two futile, budget-busting, decade-long wars don’t get Islamia on the right path, try three. So off we go with another missionary war on borrowed Chinese dollars. Hey ho. . . .

I am more and more convinced that I live in a world gone mad, and that the best I can hope to accomplish is to steer my own little four-person boat safely through the white water.
