Another reason to pay attention to MaxSpeak

He uses the "E" word: Empire.

From a recent post critiqueing the fact that the Democratic party foreign policy folks are close in position to the Republican party foreign policy folks. Talking about an article in the Washington Post that he links to he makes the following statement:

"What is at issue, as the article suggests, is strategic doctrine. Gore is not Bush, but Gore could have invaded Iraq. Beating the Bushists with superficial, pragmatic, or otherwise flaky arguments merely greases the skids for the new bosses, same as the old bosses. The difficult thing to face is that Madeleine Albright is a butcher.

We don't need a critique of the Bush Administration's execution of the invasion, nor of the neo-cons fantasies about democratization of the Middle East. We need a critique of Empire. We need to think differently."
