There Are None So Blind

as Zionists who won't let go and Neocons who have never made a mistake.

Thanks to Tom Friedman in the NYT, we have been handed a solution to the colossal blunder in Iraq:

Mr. Bush needs to invite to Camp David the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council, the heads of both NATO and the U.N., and the leaders of Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Syria. There, he needs to eat crow, apologize for his mistakes and make clear that he is turning a new page. Second, he needs to explain that we are losing in Iraq, and if we continue to lose the U.S. public will eventually demand that we quit Iraq, and it will then become Afghanistan-on-steroids, which will threaten everyone. Third, he needs to say he will be guided by the U.N. in forming the new caretaker government in Baghdad. And fourth, he needs to explain that he is ready to listen to everyone's ideas about how to expand our force in Iraq, and have it work under a new U.N. mandate, so it will have the legitimacy it needs to crush any uprisings against the interim Iraqi government and oversee elections — and then leave when appropriate. And he needs to urge them all to join in.

I like to inject humor here when possible. In this case, Mr. Friedman has done it for me. Pardon me a moment while I wipe the tears of mirth from my eyes. Friedman actually suggests that George W. "I've NEVER made a mistake of any kind" Bush should (ah ha ha ha ha) "eat crow" and "apologize".

Perhaps it would have been easier, so long as we're dealing in fantasy, merely to opine that the solution to the Iraqi (and terrorist) problem in the world would be for all Muslims to convert to Judaism. That would work! And it's just as likely as Friedman's idiotic scenario.
