The weblog is not the most useless weapon in the War On Terrorism. That title is still held by the nuclear submarine. Tim Cavanaugh of the Online Journalism review takes on the internet jingoists with Let Slip the Blogs of War (if you see a blank page, scroll down to find the story).

Tim hits many good points while trashing many lounge chair hawks. Sample: When Taranto seethes that the Spanish have no right to quibble about our death penalty because, well, because Spain was a fascist dictatorship as recently as 1975, you know you've reached some kind of low point in the art of forensic rhetoric.
