I am a Southern conservative who has voted Republican since the Nixon years. That said, I am disturbed by the insinuation that to question the motives of invading, and it was an invasion, Iraq are impertinent. Our president told us Iraq was a threat to Americans, that Saddam was in the process of developing nuclear weapons. This is a direct statement made during his State of the Union speech. It was unambiguous and clearly stated. So why is it repellent to now ask, “Where are the weapons?”
It would appear Mr. Tyrrell is upset because Kerry and Dean are calling Mr. Bush a liar. What do you expect from two ultra-liberals. I am upset because several hundred thousand men and women will have been put in harm’s way under a false pretense.
In this period of post-war reflection are we not free to ponder, having found no evidence of WMD’s, why we went to war?…p>Finally, if an invasion can be justified because a country is being run by a murderous dictator, what the hell is Castro still doing in Cuba? How about North Korea, China and the entire continent of Africa?
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
