    I strongly hope no civillians are killed. But if you think the average voter gives a damn about those who "harbor terrorists" getting killed alongside the terrorists, I'm glad you know more fair and peaceful people than I do. And I'm in Vermont among the old hippies.

    Americans just want to see things blown up in the vicinity of the terrorists' homes. Call me cynical, call me jaded. But that's sure how I see most of the voting public. Do you ever walk into a bar and talk with random strangers about this stuff? Foreigners dying - especially if they're "not like us" - just isn't a typical deep concern.

    We don't have any hostages in the field. So it can't be like Carter's dilemma. Anything we can blow up abroad is to the positive - politically - however much it may distress you or me.
