In other words, how dare anyone disagree with this phony “war on terror” that demands that we attack and occupy countries that had nothing to do with 9/11? How dare anyone question the infinite blank check handed to the President to make war on any country he chooses for any reason? In 1942, we went to war against a state (Japan) that explicitly attacked us. Victory was realized when that state surrendered. Who do we seek surrender from in the “war on terror”? Everybody and nobody. How do we know when we have won? We won’t. Hence, the war goes on indefinitely. A “war on terror” is a war on a tactic (terror) that we and Israel as well as our enemies use at will. If we truly wish to make war on terror, then we should start bombing ourselves and Israel as well as our enemies. Obviously, it is not “terror” that motivates the pro-war crowd.
To make comparisons between WW II and the Iraq war is disingenuous. There is no comparison. The former war was fought in self-defense. The current war is a war of conquest and expropriation. How long must America be bled to satisfy PNAC’s (Project For The New American Century) dream of world domination?p>With Lamont, those of us who oppose the war in Connecticut now have a real choice this November, not a phony choice between pro-war Lieberman and some Republican nonentity. br> — Mike Stamper br> Windsor, Connecticut /p>
Fine piece, Mr. Lord. The “loyal opposition,” in 2006, is certainly quite different. The Dems, fanatic worshipers of international communism, simply share a common purpose with the Muslim miscreants, fanatic worshipers of Sharia law, the destruction of the U.S. The enemy of my enemy is my friend, so to speak. I wonder what the Dems will do when the caliphate blows up the UN?p>Indeed, we are a long way from 1942. I hope 2 months is time enough to get us there again.
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?
