  •  I totally agree with (none)
    your sentiments and concerns, but I'm being pragmatic--what do we have left to convince people who still support the prez and the war?   Torture, illegal search and seizure, corruption, proof of Administration mendacity about WMD and the 9-11/Saddam link, etc. don't seem to phase them in the least.  

    As long as they are already completely deluded about Reagan ending communism, why not use that core belief to change their minds about Iraq?  You don't advocate that belief, you start the debate acknowledging that that is their belief--it isn't your belief and it's not mine.  When they start replacing a belief system based on lies about Iraq, 9-11, WMD, etc., with one based on facts, then we can set the record straight about the Cold War.  See?  It's a segue to reality.

    •  I believe I understand (none)
      your argument.

      I just don't agree with it.

      Soldiers are required to do their jobs when politicians fail to do theirs
