I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Quote of the Day

The New York Times has picked up the story about Saudi King Abdullah referring to the US involvement in Iraq as an illegal occupation I discussed below. The Times article, Saudi King Condemns U.S. Occupation of Iraq, doesn't really have any additional details but does have some observations from from the region. This one deserves the quote of the day.
Turki al-Rasheed, who runs a organization that promotes democracy in Saudi Arabia, said the king was “saying we may be moving on the same track, but our ends are different.”

“Bush wants to make it look like he is solving the problem, the king wants to actually solve the problems,” Mr. Rasheed said.
That could just about describe the entire Bush presidency.
