  •  It's the wrong question (4+ / 0-)

    Many a heated debate here on DKos also revolves around the challenge he raises.  However, some foundational questions need to be asked first. Are there entities in Pakistan who are a threat to US security? If your answer is yes, then another question is: Should we be doing something about that? If the answer to that is also yes, we can then get into the discussion of what the something we should do might be.

    •  The putting of warheads on terrorist foreheads is (6+ / 0-)

      not an exact science. Just sayin', not to justify unintended casualties that have occurred.

      I'm all for peace but it has a cost, one our President is too well aware of in ways that I fear many of our pacifist friends will never come anywhere close to comprehending.

      With respect to responding to T-baggsters or Ron/Rand Paul AquaBuddha worshipers and other rusted wingnuts,  social science or political posturing that justifies just letting assholes who plan terrorist activities walk free is its own reward.

      Please refer them to the briefing that W & whiney condi  received and ignored about the threat Bin laden represented and then spin the clock up to 9/11.
