Seymour Hersh on Iran in the New Yorker :

A Democratic senator told me that, late last year, in an off-the-record lunch meeting, Secretary of Defense Gates met with the Democratic caucus in the Senate. (Such meetings are held regularly.) Gates warned of the consequences if the Bush Administration staged a preëmptive strike on Iran, saying, as the senator recalled, “We’ll create generations of jihadists, and our grandchildren will be battling our enemies here in America.” Gates’s comments stunned the Democrats at the lunch, and another senator asked whether Gates was speaking for Bush and Vice-President Dick Cheney. Gates’s answer, the senator told me, was “Let’s just say that I’m here speaking for myself.”

OF COURSE they did.

You still don't get it, do you?

Let me quote RA Wilson at you:

IF VOTING COULD CHANGE THE SYSTEM, IT WOULD BE ILLEGAL

IF NOT VOTING COULD CHANGE THE SYSTEM, IT WOULD BE ILLEGAL

Is it starting to sink in, yet?

In that case, I deduce that not wearing your seatbelt can change the system. Unbuckle those belts people!
