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.

Lefties my ass

There is a lot of reaction to the pro-war propaganda piece by MICHAEL E. O’HANLON and KENNETH M. POLLACK in the NYT this morning. Of course the right blogosphere is beside itself. Dean Barnett asks If They've Lost Brookings? This of course is absurd - you can't lose something you never had. Hanlon and Pollack have mirrored William Kristol and Joe Lieberman for their support for the war and have been wrong just as often. These two "lefties" have as much credibility as Krislol, Lieberman and the Bush administration. A commentor at TMV asks the right question:
Which again raises the question - how many times can you be completely wrong and still be considered credible?
Of course their cheer leading was published on the same day the Iraqi Parliament started it's month long recess having accomplished nothing.
BAGHDAD - Iraq’s parliament on Monday shrugged off U.S. criticism and adjourned for a month, as key lawmakers declared there was no point waiting any longer for the prime minister to deliver Washington-demanded benchmark legislation for their vote.

Speaker Mahmoud al-Mashhadani closed the final three-hour session without a quorum present and declared lawmakers would not reconvene until Sept. 4. That date is just 11 days before the top U.S. military and political officials in Iraq must report to Congress on American progress in taming violence and organizing conditions for sectarian reconciliation.
