Doom, Gloom, Illumination

Mark Steyn’s irreverent but spot-on commentary (barring only a single too-flippant remark on the consequences of failure) on the Iraqi constitution thoroughly deflates who foresee impending doom, just as they have foreseen impending doom at every other crucial juncture in the war against FascIslam.
A single sample retro: “Remember the Afghan war? On Nov. 7, 2001, the New York Times’ Maureen Dowd was sneering at the Northern Alliance for being a lot of useless layabout deadbeats. ‘They smoke and complain more than they fight,’ she scoffed. A couple of days later, Kabul fell so swiftly that on Nov. 14 Dowd switched smoothly – with only the mildest case of columnar whiplash – to whining that the hitherto layabout Northern Alliance had ‘embarrassed’ us with their ‘savage force.’”
That’s Maureen Dowd all right – all the intellectual candlepower of a pyrite filament, all the historical grasp of a mayfly, and all the conscience of . . . a columnist for the New York Times. Sic semper punditus.
