Heads I win, tails you lose 

Two interesting links for today. Mahmood of Mahmood's Den has a long post on the current condition of the Arab world:

"We have been conditioned over the centuries to worship not Allah in all his magnificence and glory, but those sorry excuse for humanity who's claims to fame are a strong arm and the readiness with which they ladle cruelty to their people."
(via Iraq the Model)

And Powerline Blog dissects some of the contradictions at the heart of "Imperial Hubris" by Anonymous, the intelligence insider critical of the conduct of the war on terror:

"We're losing the war on terrorism because our militaristic response enables bin Laden to rally followers against us and causes Europeans to back away. We're losing the war on terrorism because we have 'lived up to our reputation of being unwilling to be a ruthless military power'."
Heads I win, tails you lose - hasn't that been the approach by many in the media to the Bush presidency, the war on terror and war in Iraq all along?
