I have just caught up with the two columns by our friend Mac Owens posted at NRO yesterday and today. The first of the columns follows up on Mac’s New York Post column — “Behind the casualties” — that we linked to on Monday. In “Sterile irrelevance” Mac sizes up the impact of current criticisms of the war:
It is hard to conduct military operations when a chorus of eunuchs is describing every action we take as a violation of everything for which America stands, a quagmire in which we are doomed to failure, and a waste of American lives.
Today in “Sucker” Mac takes a look at the friends of Cindy Sheehan. I think it’s fair to say that he finds them among the chorus of eunuchs referred to in his previous column. Bill O’Reilly takes his own look in “The saga of Cindy Sheehan deepens.”
At Iraq the Model Mohammed posts “A message to Cindy Sheehan.” On a related note, Henry Kissinger’s Washington Post column provides a serious analysis of the difficult choices confronting the United States in the war: “Lessons for an exit strategy.” (Courtesy of RealClearPolitics.)
