Why enemies sometimes need each other

Donald Rumsfeld says another terrorist attack could restore the neo-con agenda.

Reader DJ Mitchell often blogs about this at Asymptotic Life, about how if participants in a supposed peace process never somehow manage to achieve peace, then quite probably they don’t want it. The process of war and conflict rewards them in some way, and peace would end that.

His thoughts on this are not theoretical, he has spent considerable time in Sri Lanka working with an organization to end the decades-old civil war there.

Do Rumsfeld’s comment sound like a man who wants peace? Not hardly. Instead he almost seems to hope for another attack.
