A flotilla of lies

The Belmont Club may be the most important writing in the blogosphere. This piece on hyper-blitzkrieg media war is a must read.

The defeat being advertised by the press is a wholly new phenomenon: one which leaves the vanquished army untouched and the victor devastated; the economy of the vanquished burgeoning and that of the victor in destitution; the territory of the loser unoccupied and that of the winner garrisoned. It is an inversion of all the traditional metrics of victory and defeat. That the assertion is not instantly ludicrous is an indication of the arrival of a new and potentially revolutionary form of political wafare.

And then... I see the Minbari ambassador to the blogosphere has beat me to the punch! Now thinking of next blog to enthuse about.
