NIT Theory in action...

Of course, Obama is happy to blast "chosen" wars in Iraq and Afghanistan on the one hand, and to use them as a diving board into a new global narrative on the other. He knows that the past eight years provided the necessary ugliness that had to occur in order to yield progress. Read my NIT Theory to understand what I'm after here.

Si si amigo, Bush was a wank, but I'm hesitant to knock him for getting us involved over there - despite the cockamamie reasons he and his dufus crew trumped up. Ultimately, Bush's actions gave us, gave Obama, a gift: A tangible, memorably painful history that is ripe for transformation. Behold the shift from war to something closer to peace and prosperity. It is the stuff epic presidents dream of Grasshopper.
