-Warring Tribes, Here and There  By MAUREEN DOWD  One former senior Republican official noted: "The only one who can reach the president is his father. But it is not timely yet to talk to him." This raised the odd specter of the president's being dragged off from running a war and taken to Kennebunkport for a Metternichian outing in the family cigarette boat. Mr. Scowcroft and Mr. Eagleburger could pin W. down while Bar steered and Poppy explained the facts of international life.

-Anti-war Cry As the war in Iraq continues, many in the U.S. and around the world raise their voices in protest
-Struggling to win the war while already losing the peace   The propaganda war has now spread from the war to the diplomacy of post-war. It's largely flim-flam, of course. Just as the Pentagon had prepared its war plans for nearly a year before this invasion, so it has prepared its peace plans for almost as long. In the same way that George Bush was prepared to go to the United Nations in the run-up to war so long as it backed his plans, so he is prepared to see the United Nations participate in relief and fundraising for reconstruction so long as it in no way dilutes U.S. control.

-Amy Goodman:  Robert Fisk talks of Washington’s ‘Quagmire’ in Iraq, Civilian Deaths and the Fallacy of Bush’s ‘War of Liberation’ It seems to me that this concentration on whether television should show prisoners or not is a kind of mischief: it’s not the point. The issue, of course, is that both sides are taking prisoners, and that both sides want the other side to know of the prisoners they’ve taken. I watched CNN showing a British soldier forcing a man to kneel on the ground and put his hands up and produce his identity card and I’ve seen other film on British television of prisoners near Um Qasr and Basra being forced to march past a British soldier with their hands in the air.

-Saddam rejects Bush ultimatum
-Two cheers for the peacekeepers  Indeed, the anti-U.N. campaign seems just the beginning of a grander conservative project: the scrapping of the old world order--the treaties and institutions that America helped create to stabilize the world after World War II. What on earth has happened to American conservatism? It used to be a reliably dour movement, a sober restraint upon the wishful thinking of mushy-minded liberals. But it has slipped, somehow, from realism to utopian fantasy.
