One of my biggest gripes in life is the fact that we keep sending in ground troops. We bombed Japan in WWII. It was done to stop a nasty war in its tracks, and save many lives on both sides. Since then, we have limited bombing and sent in a lot of ground troops. We don’t seem committed enough to bomb first and ask questions later. Civilian casualties are part of war. 9/11. If we must attack Iran, and we must, let’s get out all the good stuff and do it right. Civilians are working in those plants helping their tyrants set up this mess. And if we send in our troops to surgically remove the bad guys and leave the innocent civilians, we will be trying to sort the bastards out for eternity. Like we did in Nam and are doing in Iraq and just about every war before and in between. Enemy doesn’t have guts enough to wear a uniform and stand up and fight. Once our men are in, it is hard to back up and really bomb.
We were so close. Hanoi was just about ready to throw in the towel. Politicians grounded the 52’s and Hanoi was hidden behind American POWs. Hanoi knew public opinion here at home was siding with them.

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?
