Perle is gone

If there is one way I can describe Richard Perle, it would be his National Security philosophy. He is one of the believers of the 'Screw the World, we can beat you with one hand tied behind our back' neo-conservative foreign policy. He is one of the people who see a brighter future in the Middle East, by going to war with everyone in the Middle East. He was the wise guy who thought you could make friends by blackmailing them. (His famous outburst from earlier was that the German Prime Minister should resign for criticizing George Bush about Iraq.)

Well, he's resigning over ethics problems.

It's a damn shame. We were all looking forward to his libel suit against Seymour Hersh. Hersh had the termerity to say that Perle's actions may be problematic, ethically.
