Anatol Lieven’s departure from our fair shores to return to England was a huge blow for the DC think tank universe, but I’m glad to see he hasn’t completely given up writing on our issues. Thus, I’ve been distracted from my efforts to write a long piece about how absolutely terrifying John McCain is on foreign policy by Lieven’s brief piece on how terrifying McCain is. If we’re lucky, McCain will only start wars with North Korea and Iran. If we’re unlucky, we may need to add China or (more likely) Russia to that list.
