No End in Sight

I viewed a rather disturbing feature-length US-made documentary last eve on CBC's Newsworld: No End in Sight. Nominated for an oscar for 2007, it basically explores the theme that none of those heading the US government's Iraq file from the president on down know what they're doing. All totally incompetent. Sad. Very sad.

Let's hope that the new US administration that'll come to power ~10 months from now is not so fully of 'cronyism' as the current one and will employ people that have at least a smattering of knowledge of what they're supposed to be doing. There are some in this country that think a new administration will be able to turn things around rapidly, much like Mr Clinton did following the defeat of the first Bush president. One of the US' weak points is such total commitment to mediocrity and slothfulness - in everything - starting from the shape of their bodies.

The biggest beneficiaries of the bungling are the Iranians. They're historic enemy in the region, Iraq, can no longer harass them.
