What the Heck?: A Quick Primer

One of the things about keeping the blog these days is that I don't have time to cover the issues that need covering and at the same time explain to readers the reasoning that underpins my selection and weighting of issues.

Some may wonder, for example, why a blog that has spent so much time engaging with the ideas of Tom Barnett in The Pentagon's New Map has of late spent so much time engaging with the ideas of Ward Churchill in On the Justice of Roosting Chickens.

The answer is, of course, obvious.

Obvious to you, perhaps, and pretty clear to me. But there's lots of people out there who haven't heard of Blowback, who don't realize that bin Laden was on our side against the Soviets and Hussein was our man against Iran, who can't imagine why any state would feel the need to develop WMD to ward off a US attack. You need to explain these things.
