Hey, I'm agreeing with you. I've come over to your side. I've seen the light. Israel is an evil, filthy, rotten, vicious, fascist, warmongering, racist country full of evil, filthy,rottten, vicious, fascist. warmongering, racist Jews (did I miss anything?) and its supporters in the United States are nothing but villainous traitors. Israel and its rotten Jews should be exterminated immediately. And the Iranians, the Taliban, the Islamists, Al-Qaeda are all peace-loving people who mean absolutely no harm to the United States.
"Chuck Hagel is out of the mainstream of thinking ... on most issues regarding foreign policy," says GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham. Neocon William Kristol concurs: Hagel is "out on the fringes."

But where, exactly, is the mainstream on foreign policy in 2013?

Since the Bush II years, "the three amigos" -- Sens. Graham, John McCain and Joe Lieberman -- have clamored for new wars.

"We are all Georgians now!" thundered McCain when Vladimir Putin was thrashing the Georgians for attacking South Ossetia.

"Bomb, bomb, bomb -- bomb, bomb Iran," trilled McCain in 2008 in parody of the Beach Boys' "Barbara Ann."...
