What do you do when the war you’ve started is increasingly unpopular, costly, and inimical to American interests in the region? Why, start another one of course! The neocons who control our foreign policy are getting bored with Iraq – been there, done that – and have now set their sights on Iran and Syria.

The deaths of Captain Phillip T. Esposito and Lieutenant Louis E. Allen, on Tuesday, near Tikrit, may be the definitive argument in favor of the view that this war is another Vietnam -- or worse.

Eugene Volokh thinks former Rep. Paul Findley made a “substantial” error when he attributed to her an admission that the U.S. has an “Israel-centric” foreign policy. I can’t imagine that she ever said any such thing – after all, in her confirmation hearing she wouldn’t even admit that we were lied into war, or that she had any hand in the lying. From the Israeli point of view, at any rate, the problem seems to be that our foreign policy isn’t Israel-centric enough. After all, why else would the Israelis be running spies like Larry Franklin, the 58-year-old Pentagon analyst, whose indictment [.pdf] on 6 counts of espionage was made public today?
