    Talking about shades of 2003. For god's sake, could this look (or sound) anymore like Bush?

    I kept expecting Kerry to talk about an Axis of Evil, because based on the justification for war he's offering, we need to attack every time there's a bastard who's brutalizing helpless, innocent people. And there's at least 1,000 of them in the world today (possibly a lot more) even if we just count the bigger fish and also exclude all the people who do such things through the private sector rather than relying on the power of the State (you'll notice nobody ever wants to start a war over Chiquita Banana allegedly killing over 3,000 people in South America, or Shell's adventures with mercenary troops in Africa.)

    The party of Kennedy is also the party of Eastland. The party of Javits is also the party of Goldwater. Where is our party? Where is the political party that will make it unnecessary to march on Washington?

      why arent we at war with china then, they have plenty of documented human rights abuses.  should we get all pissed if russia takes action against us because of something we might do in the future.

      the bs carny was pushing about how syrian chemical weapons might threaten us down the line, thus requiring military action was outrageous.  lets just nuke the whole planet, sooner or later some country is going to attack us anyways.

      the use of chemical weapons by Syrian rebels.
