An Exercise in OmphaloskepsisI've been informed, from time to time, that my views are "simplistic."
If it's "simplistic" to deviate from the assumptions of Professor Churchill, Code Pink, ANSWER, and people who are upset by the use of draftees in Bush's war on Iraq, then my approach to reality is simplistic.
And I wouldn't have it any other way.
Repeating what I wrote earlier, "I'm not one of those sophisticated people who believe that 'the US is the world's number one terrorist' - or that Israel is a racist oppressor."
And, I agree with former American secretaries of state on at least one thing: America should lead.
I don't think that America is perfect. But it's not the 'great Satan America,' either.
"Omphaloskepsis"?! That's a five-dollar word for "navel gazing." Princeton's WordNet has a pretty good definition.
