[Marxism] Kerryzona: No more room for Democratic self-delusions

As I wrote in Left I on the News here:

Kerry is caught in a trap of his own making, hoist with his own petard. He 
CANNOT admit the invasion of Iraq was a mistake, even if he thought it was 
(which I don't believe he does). Because if he did, his famous "how do you 
ask a someone to be the last man to die for a mistake" would dictate that he 
call for an immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, something he 
isn't about to do.

Just as ominous as Kerry's ringing endorsement of the preemptive war 
doctrine (even in the absence of any threat!) is yesterday's pronouncement 
from Condoleezza Rice regarding Iran (see 
<http://lefti.blogspot.com/2004_08_01_lefti_archive.html#109216134797830093>): 
"Iran will either be isolated or it will submit."
