Ralph Peters / New York Post:
THE 'EURABIA' MYTH  —  A RASH of pop prophets tell us that Muslims in Europe are reproducing so fast and European societies are so weak and listless that, before you know it, the continent will become "Eurabia," with all those topless gals on the Riviera wearing veils.  —  Well, maybe not.

THEY REPORT, YOU DECIDE (WITH UPDATE FROM MARK STEYN)  —  Most of our readers are aware of Mark Steyn's "Demography is Destiny" theme, which he has elaborated in much of his recent writing.  Steyn thinks that low birth rates among Europeans, in particular, will inevitably lead to their replacement …

A Matter of Definition: What Makes a Civil War, and Who Declares It So?  —  Is Iraq in a civil war?  —  Though the Bush administration continues to insist that it is not, a growing number of American and Iraqi scholars, leaders and policy analysts say the fighting in Iraq meets the standard definition of civil war.

The "centrist" position on the war in Iraq  —  This Washington Post article on the inner workings of the bizarrely revered Baker-Hamilton Commission is notable for several reasons, the first of which is that neoconservatives are stomping their feet and whining loudly because they feel …

Iraq Group a Study In Secrecy, Centrism  —  In the history of U.S. foreign policy, there's been nothing like it: a panel outside government trying to bail the United States out of a prolonged and messy war.  —  The innocuously titled Iraq Study Group, which has evolved into a parallel policy establishment …

Video: Rangel says men join the army only if they can't have "a decent career"  —  Hence his support for the draft.  If even our volunteers are there involuntarily, why shouldn't everyone be? … This won't get as much attention as what Lurch said (or was understood to have said) a few weeks ago.
Atrios / Eschaton:
No  —  Look, people who advocate adding "personal accounts" to Social Security are just stupid people.  Really, just morons.  There's no reason to do it.  There's no reason to take any part of Social Security contributions and put them in a little fund account with my name on it.
