So soon after the Iraq WMD debacle and cooked up intelligence, they say with a straight face "trust us, we have secret intelligence, this time for real (and it's a judgment call, no hard facts)"? Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, as George Bush almost said.

It is amazing that the US economy is stagnating, places like Detroit are worse than parts of Africa in a load of respects, and the thing that gets the US president stirred up the most, priority channel 1 … is blowing yet more middle eastern towns into the dark ages with $200m-a-pop missiles.

I don't think I have ever seen a country's reputation go from "wow, what an awesomely cool land, wish our country was like that!" to "warmongering, sneaky spying empire of evil, hope we never become like them" in 10 short years.
