To celebrate the end of military operations in Iraq, I suppose it might be apropos to once again offer up the song "Leaving Babylon," by ER Salo Deguierre, a tale of intrigue set against our troubles in the Persian Gulf. It's not an anti-America song, as some might surmise on first hearing. It's more a look at extreme thinkers and how they so easily switch sides. Because, to an extremist, the content of his thoughts is not as important as his extreme feelings. I'm looking at you, Michael Savage, David Horowitz and John Voight.
