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

This is the Quote of the Day neocon idiocy edition.  It comes from our sensible friend Daniel Larison:
Romney exaggerates the influence that a continued U.S. presence would give Washington, and he overestimates the ability of U.S. forces to prevent Iran from using its relationship with Baghdad to provide support to Assad. As usual, the people who favored deposing the old Iraqi regime and removing one of the main checks on Iranian influence are now deeply distressed there is an Iraqi government willing to cooperate with Iran. The conduct of Maliki’s government is a perfect example of what the U.S. can and should always expect even from those leaders that the U.S. helped bring to power.
Of course Romney is listening to the same  people who think we should occupy Afghanistan forever, occupy Libya and Syria and at the same time cut taxes and reduce the deficit.  The party of  Unicorns and fantasy.
If you liked the foreign policy of Bush/Cheney you will love Mitt Romney.
