Scott al-Ritter of Leftistan

Scott Ritter, writing for Aljazeera, is still singing the same tune about Iraq:

It is a war the United States cannot win, and which the government of Iyad Allawi cannot survive. Unfortunately, since recent polls show that some 70% of the American people support the war in Iraq, it is a war that will rage until the American domestic political dynamic changes, and the tide of public opinion turns against the war.

Tragically, this means many more years of conflict in Iraq that will result in thousands more killed on both sides, and incomprehensible suffering for the people of Iraq, and unpredictable instability for the entire Middle East.

Ritter seems to want an active role in changing the "political dynamic" and turning American public opinion against the war in Iraq.

It's hard to imagine that he can believe publication of his writings by Aljazeera is the way to do it, but apparently he does. Lucky for us and the Iraqis.

You've missed your calling, Mic. You should be writing headlines for the Moonie Times.
