Are you sure? From Lileks: "Our present enemy will nuke us as soon as they can, because it means heaven, period. I hate this; God I hate this. But I don’t have any longing for normalcy, as Noonan put it the other day, because normalcy was a delusion, a diaphanous curtain draped over the statue of Mars. Nor do I want a time out, a breather, an operational pause. I want to cut to the chase."
But what is the chase? I dread to think.
