Disastrous foreign policy predates President Bush, but he has refined and elevated the art, taking it to new and even unimaginable levels.

We need to stop everything. We need to stop supporting both Musharraf AND Bhutto (okay, I know that one’s been taken care of, but we need to stop the PRACTICE!). We need to stop supporting the Kurds AND Turkey. We need to stop supporting the Sunnis AND the Shiites.

We need to stop supporting the enemy of our enemy of the moment, because when we support them simply because they are the enemy of our enemy, they inevitably, and invariably, and without exception, become OUR enemy. It’s just a matter of time.

We need to stop having enemies. I’m serious. Iraq didn’t need to be our enemy. Iran doesn’t need to be our enemy. Venezuela doesn’t need to be our enemy.

Why don’t we try this: Why don’t we decide the friend of our friend is our friend. North Korea is a friend of China, and China is the friend of America; the very best kind of friend: the kind of friend that finances imperial wars!

Libya is the friend of every autocratic, dictatorial, rogue regime in the known universe. Libya is our friend.

Maybe Rob Kall was right. Mabye we should support Ron Paul.
