Gideon's Blog

In direct contravention of my wife's explicit instructions, herewith I inaugurate my first blog. Long may it prosper.

For some reason, I think I have something to say to you. You think you have something to say to me? Email me at: gideonsblogger -at- yahoo -dot- com

BTW: apropos of my earlier complaints about the quality of conservative commentary on the democracy-in-Iraq question, I think the series of pieces by Hussain Hindawi and John R. Thomson that NRO is publishing are a good start. Maybe we'll see more and better material on this question now that the war is mostly won. But if what came before was cheerleading rather than analysis, well, caveat emptor for the future to all us readers. My view: that's not a journalist's job.

My newest and growing worry is: who is going to defend the Iraqis from Turkey, Iran, etc.? We really don't want this job. It doesn't look like the Iraqis will be very good at doing it themselves. It's a problem.
