The best of the rest

(via Harry's Place) Robert Kagan picks up on Joschka Fischer's  remarks.
"To modernize an Islamic country based on the shared values of Europe would be almost a D-Day for Europe in the war against terror," 
Timothy Garton Ash in The Guardian      ( via ).

Behind all these contorted reservations, we hear an inner voice which says, in effect, "Why won't all these bloody, semi-barbarian, east Europeans leave us alone, to go on living happily ever after in our right, tight, little west European (or merely British) paradise?" And, quite often, "Why are those bloody Americans stirring them up to disturb us?"
Also recommended isFranco Alemá on Aznar's testimony.
