Come again?

Robert Dreyfuss, author of "Devil’s Game: How the United States Helped Unleash Fundamentalist Islam," appeared on Democracy Now today. During his interview with host Amy Goodmam, Dreyfuss said of the worsening Iraqi situation:

"It can’t be righted. It’s virtually a hopeless situation. And so, now there are rumors all over the place, in Washington, in Baghdad, in other places, that there are forces trying to come up with a non-democratic solution, some sort of coup d'etat...."

Which leads Dada to ponder if that explains the sudden activation of James Baker by the Bush administration, particularly in light of his most successful orchestration of the 2000 U.S. coup d'etat.

so what do you think we should do mr dada, about Iraq?

or a better question might be -- what do you think we will be able to do, considering the situation there?

so we leave and let the tribal leaders keep their regions and fight over the oil themselves?

i ask because - i just don't know anymore...

az: In the words of Christopher Buckley, "Let’s quit while we’re behind," and get the hell outta there as quickly as possible. It will save innumberable American and Iraqi lives the sooner we leave.

The bastards who rushed to get us in, can work out the details to get us out.

And honestly, you ask good questions, and I--as you--just don't know anymore.

(And I honestly don't think we're going anywhere fast.)
