To the Bushies, everyone is a terrorist. The people of Iraq have rights under the Geneva Convention to fight a foreign occupier who has attacked them without provocation. The resistance fighters definitely qualify as combatants under the Geneva Convention. Of course, the most disturbing thing here is that Mr. Daniels, a noted acadamecian and low end GOP Bar-B-Que performer, is really advocating torture and murder. God Bless America, he says, as he pours acid down someone's throat.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
