Read this and cheer

In a fantastic post at ShrinkWrapped, Owen Johnson gives the first part of his essay on Reasons for Optimism. It's a cogent and essentially positive analysis of the current state of play in the `War on Terror'.

What makes me so angry when I hear people in the UK, who should know better, say `dumb Americans', is that they can happily ignore people like this, who write with cogency and intelligence. Actually, of course, `dumb Americans' usually just means `citizens of a superpower, who are richer than me', but what the hell, feelings of cultural superiority keep you warm.
