The Struggle for Civilization

If, as the President insists so often, the war on terra really does mean the end of civilization, then why don't we pull out all the stops ? That would mean sending hundreds of thousands more troops to what he calls center stage, Iraq. Of course, the draft would need to be started up again. In order to finally get Osama, we would need to invade Pakistan with a large force and fight it out with Pakistani tribes there. Our whole country would need to go onto a WWII type of economy, with precious items rationed like gas and meat. Corporations might need to be nationalized for the war effort. The young women would prepare bandages and medical supplies for our Armed Forces. And everyone could pitch in by planting a victory garden. Total involvement - certainly Western Civilization is worth some sacrifice.

Since this is not what's happening, maybe Bush doesn't really mean what he says, ya think ?

The GOP's best tactic - fear.

To paraphrase Sen. Barack Obama,
Do we choose the audacity of hope or the cyncism of fear?

The President chooses fear; Democrats think otherwise.

Sadly enough, that's all he's got.
