I've mentioned before that there are basically two kinds of Richard Cohen columns: "Boring Waste of Time" and "Thunderously Stupid Waste of Time." His latest is definitely in the second category.
Guess what? Richard Cohen thinks Iraq is a messy mess right now why? Because we haven't been "engaging" enough, we need to restart the war (and start another one in Syria, of course), no interference in the Middle East is bad interference, etc. He must have gotten two, maybe even three pats on the head from Fred Hyatt for this one!
Or not. As of this writing, more than eight hours after Cohen posted this neocon drek, the Washington Post's online editors still haven't noticed that his column repeats three times. Or maybe that's a rhetorical device? A bad argument becomes more convincing when evoked thrice? Or perhaps it's a "Beetlejuice" kind of thing, where Cohen believes if he repeats the same thing three times it will become a reality? Let's hope not!
