Americans’ Isolationist Instincts Are Sound

The Washington Post and the International New York Times had the same front-page headlines today. Both had to do (as the Times put it) with the “Power Void” in the Mideast, deploring that America’s decade of attempting to create a new order in the region now is blowing up in its face.

Semantics Can’t Mask Bush’s Chicanery

U.S. Wounded in Iraq Worst Since Fallujah

The number of American troops being wounded in Iraq is at a two-year high; the number wounded may be a better indicator of realities in Iraq than the number killed because, compared with previous wars, many more wounded troops survive.

“The People of Fallujah Love Cindy Sheehan”

Sunni leaders who plan to participate in the Dec. 15 Iraq elections told Marines that they are encouraged by the actions of activist Cindy Sheehan and others who are calling for a U.S. withdrawal.
