New Sinica podcast

In a China accustomed to glacial political change, Bo Xilai's dramatic fall from power this week has stunned observers nationwide. Joining us to help make sense of things is Guardian correspondent Tania Branigan, who helps review what exactly happened to the former Chongqing Party Secretary and once Politburo contender. Sinica then turns to a discussion of history, architecture and murder with fellow guest and soon-to-be-famous author Paul French, whose non-fiction murder mystery Midnight in Peking is set for a much broader international release next month.

Maureen Dowd's latest column in the New York Times is titled "Liz Cheney: Desist!" She argues that Republicans are irresponsibly "urging the dogs of war once more".

But I find the soft-pedaled jingoism in Thomas Friedman's latest column in the same newspaper to be more sinister - his reasonable-sounding laying down of a case for a preemptive strike. Friedman writes:

"If it comes to war, let it be because the ayatollahs were ready to sacrifice their whole economy to get a nuke and, therefore, America — the only country that can truly take down Iran’s nuclear program — had to act to protect the global system, not just Israel."

That sounds very much like the type of quiet argument Friedman was making in the run-up to the Iraq war, which was the last time he provided liberal Americans with some very sensible-sounding arguments as to why they should support a war on and in a country that turned out not to pose any kind of real threat to the U.S.
