Charlie Stross has interesting comments about the US situation abroad. He talks about the growing anti-US resistance movements in Iraq and Afghanistan.
I wonder if the US administration realises just how familiar this behaviour all looks to anyone with a nodding acquaintance with the history of anti-Nazi resistance movements in occupied Europe sixty years ago. (But I forgot: they can’t lose because they’re the good guys. And they know they’re the good guys because the President told them so.)
