John Manchester, Middle East expert.

With the neocon remedy for the Middle East (bombing + elections = peace!) literally going up in flames, it’s getting harder and harder for Putz to link to credible sources to support his nutty, “the war is going great, it’s just that the media is lying about it to make Bush look bad” meme.

To his credit, he found one today.

JOHN MANCHESTER: "The 'big bang,' as invading Iraq has sometimes been called, was meant to reorder the nature of politics in the region. This has been accomplished in a fundamental way."

Yeah, we got ’em just where we want ’em, John.

The link (to that trusted news source TCS Daily) contains this beauty:
Israel now has the chance to destroy Hezbollah.

Riiiiight. Finally, Israel has the chance to destroy Hezbollah. They've just been playing footsie with them the past quarter of a century, since the time Hezbollah was founded after Israel's last invasion of Lebanon. Now that Hezbollah’s got 23 seats in the Lebanese Parliament, and we’ve got 130,000 American troops sitting smack dab in the middle of an Iraqi civil war -- they’re toast.

Who the hell is this guy? Has anyone ever heard of John Manchester?

Apparently not even Putz, because he got his name wrong: it’s JOSH Manchester.

Ouch.

UPDATE:

It appears Putz has corrected his original post, without indicating the edit. Now it's "Josh" Manchester, Middle East expert. Glad we cleared that up.

There now. Cindy Sheehan has her answer. We invaded Iraq, and her son Casey had to die, to reorder the nature of politics in the region. Yeah, the order is worse now. But you have to admit it's different. Mission accomplished.
