Too true to forget, from Atrios:
Even if in some platonic plane of reality partitioning Iraq is the correct thing to do, in our blinkered reality George Bush and his merry gang of morons are still in charge of things. And "helping people relocate" (translation: forcing them to relocate) would be a massive operation, fraught with chaos and violence, overseen by a bunch of people who haven't yet managed to keep the lights on.Of course, for "partitioning Iraq" you can substitute anything--reforming education, addressing health care, preparing for disasters. However wonderful the idea, however lofty the goal, however profound the inspiration, this crew WILL screw it up. They don't seem to know that the devil is in the details, and they always let that devil escape--whoopsie, there he goes again--to dance chaotically through the ruined shrapnel of whatever dreams they were trying to harvest.
For the love of civilization, no matter what a beautiful road trip they may invite you on, stop giving them the keys to the car.
