news & opinion with no titillating non-news from the major non-news channels.


I am: progressive, not a wild-eyed Progressive; liberal, but shun liberals and Liberals; conservative, but some Conservatives worry me; absolutely NOT a libertarian. I am: an idealist, but no utopian; a pragmatist, but no Machiavellian. I am a realist who dreams.


I welcome all opinions.

Reblogged: Ziggy politics
   Democratic War Council?

From the Washington Post's Society Page, Reliable Source

Hey Isn't That . . . ?

- Nancy Pelosi lunching with former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski in a cozy booth at Washington's Teatro Goldoni yesterday.

Brzezinski had been in Europe of late touting his Four Point program for US troop withdrawal from Iraq (Ziggy is a much more complex man than John Kerry, who could only come up with a Dual-Stage program).

The Four Point program consists of,

1) Washington should suggest to the Iraqi authorities that they publicly ask the United States to pull out of Iraq,

2) set a date for pullout,

3) Iraq should invite its neighbors to a "regional conference of Muslim countries" aimed at stabilizing the situation in Iraq,

4) the United States should call an international conference to discuss funding for the reconstruction of Iraq.

Ziggy characterizes this as an option that would allow Washington to disengage gradually in Iraq, "without victory, but also without defeat".

But, the question on everyone's mind is, what's up with the big pow-pow between Ziggy and Pelosi?
