Strange Days Indeed

Billmon with quote of the day material while discussing his fear that the Democrats would knuckle-under in the face of another spirited call to war - this time with Iran [emphasis added]:

The truth is that on the most important issue of our time -- the cliff that drops into total darkness -- the only real opposition left in this country is in the Pentagon, where, according to Sy Hersh, at least some of the generals are trying to stall the march to war. Plus whatever scattered resistance is left in the intelligence agencies following the purges of the past couple of years.

It is a stunning testament to the political devolution of this country that the most effective anti-war movement in America is inside the walls of the Pentagon or buried deep in the bowels of the CIA!

Frightening prospect.
