Comment on Belmont Club "The business of Princes"


The English despised Benedict Arnold, the disloyal are never trusted, not even by those they transfered their loyalty to. The CIA of Valerie Plame will not find a home even among the conspiratorial apparatchiks who stuffed envelopes and wrote Kos diaries for Obama while dreaming of being Chekisty. Does the United States need an organization such as Ishmael Jones envisions? Absolutely it does and the lack of one has cost American lives. Is there a snowball’s chance in hell that Obama’s people will produce the professional lean focused organization desired? The incoming administration is already set to produce an orgy of competing turf wars, scandals, incompetence and waste. It will not be a movie, lives and liberties will be lost.

We can only hope that there will be a dawn to come. The alternatives may be dhimmi to the Islamists or kow-tow to the Chinese. Which will be the worse fate? When they clash who will survive? If we see India patch up its quarrels with China to face the greater threat then that great divide for the future may happen with surprising speed.
