The Pentagon as The Temple of Doom

I've written here before that I don't expect there will be substantial change in our foreign policy, including what we're doing in Iraq, regardless of which party wins the White House, or who gets control of Congress in the upcoming election.

The reason I think this way is the power of the Pentagon.

James Carroll's column in today's Boston Globe addresses this problem.

That said, I'm disgusted that Ralph Nader's super-ego need for attention might actually get McCain elected president. This man, who redefines Narcissism, mostly draws support from liberal and independent voters, those who would otherwise vote for a Democrat. Even though the Pentagon is likely to continue as The Temple of Doom no matter which party wins, the Republican Party is the more heartless of the two. They are all boot strap and no safety net. Few good Samaritans in that crowd.
