It's a First!

A Linda Heard column that I agree with! At least the basic point, that the US Senate has no right to decide the future of Iraq (or any other country) in this way. I think that she is wrong on some of the minor points - e.g. I think that Iran would be the biggest winner from a partition of Iraq, not Israel. Also, the sentence "Either Joe Biden is clueless or..." should just be "Joe Biden is clueless", but that is a minor stylistic point.

I especially enjoyed her "suggestion for the Arab world... [to] vote on the break-up of America", since such a vote would be completely worthless and pointless, pretty much like this Senate resolution. But if people want to do such things, more power to them.

Very objective writer, isn't she--I think she knows that herself!

I actually like strong opinions clearly expressed, so her columns are always interesting, even if I think that she is frequently wrong.
