FP is not as sexy as they think it is

it is irritating that "opinionators" seem to only want to opine about foreign policy...somehow it's sexy, or something. domestic policy or critical analysis about american culture is blase. when i read about beinart's title i was hoping for an examination of how america as a society found itself in a situation, as a whole, where "success breeds disaster," which is how he summarizes his argument. instead it is some analytical claptrap about how foreign policy thinkers rationalize their respective courses of action.

mildly irritating

it seemed this moniker of FreeBird chicken was a bit more disingenuous on first blush. an interesting branding system. owned by Hain-Celestial, of which 20% is owned by HJ Heinz, one of the nation's largest food conglomerates.
