Slow-motion genocide

Billmon on Riverbend's latest post, our "slow-motion genocide" in Iraq, and the complicity of all Americans; discussion here. I'm not sure I completely agree, but it's so well written that it demands reading and analysis.

In case you don't know about Riverbend, and her blog Baghdad Burning, here's some background.

As an aside, sometimes I wonder: just who is Billmon? Or Digby, or Meteor Blades, or TBogg, or the mysterious linkless commenter D.Sidhe, who shows up randomly to deliver choice bits of wisdom, snark, and rant? Who are these brilliant people with cool names who wield the pen (er..keyboard?) better than just about anyone in the MSM? And, forget their writing; is it possible that we could all just vote to put them in charge?

Anyway... Go. Read.

I love all the big, lefty blog's fundraising efforts. They are really kicking ass for a bunch of websites (I thought) only politics junkies read. Maybe that's still true but damn, wouldn't that be something. What you're suggesting, I mean.
BTW I like that your keeping it up again. I must admit I had kinda given up checking after a while.
