Lileks is great again today, if only for this paragraph on feeling a wee bit, let’s say, militant:
I hate this; God I hate this. But I donâ€™t have any longing for normalcy, as Noonan put it the other day, because normalcy was a delusion, a diaphanous curtain draped over the statue of Mars. Nor do I want a time out, a breather, an operational pause. I want to cut to the chase. I want Iran in the hands of its people and leaning to the West again, I want Lebanon independent of Syrian rule, I want Syria isolated and cowed, Arafat dead and buried in the land of his birth â€“ or Paris, symbolically â€“ and the Saudi Civil War done and over with pragmatists in power. I’d like this all tomorrow please.
Noon is fine, if it works for everyone else.
