Botnst needs to start reading more current news. Congress' attempt to end the war in Iraq is in step with what people want, and their ratings are up. Like I said, as far as I am concerned, it is ok with me if the President vetos and GOP Congress obstructs. Iraq is headed no where. It is a simple war for the insurgency, all they have to do is set off lots of car bombs and suicide attacks, for as long as it takes. As long as the infidel is in the Dar-al-Salaam, they will have no shortage of volunteers. The Irish went from 1908 until 2005. I would think the Baathists, who fought from 1920 until 1968 or so, will hang on until the next election, don't you? At this point, it is obvious to me that the fascist wing of the GOP is more of a threat to this nation than Bin Laden ever was. As long as Bush and the GOP are doing the things that insure their utter destruction at the polls in 2008, I am perfectly happy. Veto away.
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.
