[nota: I wrote this a couple of hours before Caesar's Dubya's speech] Are we ready for round two?

If one can hope for good from what is about to unfold, I hope for this: that many many people experience the searing realization that liberal law exists to protect the right of the powerful to profit; with all its high ideals, even the UN is crippled by the wealthy if it dare move to protect people.
A new generation of cynics will be born with this war, and they will seed the ground with salt with a destructiveness that any terrorist could only wish for.

The point of the attack is to discredit diplomacy and the United Nations (the Prince of Confusion inspires contempt), to humble the nations of Europe, and to humiliate the movement of peoples around the globe who have been active under the banner of "A Better World is Possible" ... but the people cannot be defeated, simply because the emancipation project is nothing other than the unfolding of history itself; however it may be delayed, and however it might be obstructed, justice will remain always, if only as a distant horizon.

Human need, not corporate greed ... without justice, there can be no peace. That's the meme stringing these items together.
