"Full-spectrum Impotence" by Jon Spitz

One of the highlights of 2007 was discovering Jon Spitz. For the past two years, he has written a bi-monthly column for the Mendocino County Observer, published in Laytonville, a very small town in northern California.

In late October, former Congressman Dan Hamburg sent me Jon’s "The Collapse Has Begun." I was so impressed that I called Jon up and asked if I could link to all of his upcoming articles. It’s a pleasure working with Jon. I’ve featured his columns here, here, here, and here.

Jon’s current column, "Full-spectrum Impotence" is so well researched and written that I urge you to read the whole thing. Starting with the May, 2000 U.S. Defense Department’s "Joint Vision 2020," which espoused full spectrum military dominance, Jon describes how the Bush regime has attempted to implement this policy and the results of these efforts.

I look forward to working with Jon in 2008. Jon’s columns and our e-mail exchanges have deepened my understanding of the “fault lines” that lie below the surface news.
