The end of multiculturalism in Great Britain? (More here.)

Amazing how a couple of bomb plots will focus the mind.

Unfortunately, we in the US still don't get it. Though, that's probably because Bush Derangement Syndrome (BDS) gets in the way of everything else.

It might well be that the best thing for the Global War on Terror (GWoT) would be a Democrat administration. Then we could turn our attention from Chimpy Bushitler McHalliburton (as he is styled by those with BDS) to actually visiting well-deserved harm on those deranged kleptocracies that intend us such harm.

Of course, that might well not happen. The last great Democrat thinker was Daniel Patrick Moynihan. The current Democrat Party has no thinkers, and is blown thither and yon by The Daily Kos. It's purely a collection of reactive time-servers and clingers-on to power. The best (and worst, sorry to say) Democrat thinking is actually being done by the mainstream media (MSM), in pursuit of electoral victory.

So, here's what's going to have to happen before we get serious about the GWoT:

1. The MSM succeeds in its aims, and a Democrat administration is elected.
2. Some Shi'ite nutter sets of a backpack nuke in the middle of Wall Street.

Well, no, maybe not Wall Street. Economically ignorant as they are, the Democrat electorate would probably cheer such an act, before wondering why supplies of Night Train have dried up.

So, let's amend (2) above to

2. Some Shi'ite nutter sets of a backpack nuke in the middle of a children's hospital.

At that point we'll be able to go to war ("For the Children"), with a Democrat administration getting the kudos for all the victories. The MSM will roll over for any and all limits on personal liberty, the ACLU will keep shut up about the internment camps, etc., etc.

And I'll be fine with that. Just win the damn war.
