    thank you.  yes it is disturbing. We see our party hoping to win by being more vigilant against terror, more "supportive" of our troops - the question of whether the nation should be maintained on a permanant war footing, terror or no, is lost - any competition between military and social expenditures cannot be mentioned.  Its one thing if this posture is tactical - if it is wise for the Kerry campaign to take this or that tone - but it is dismaying to detect it here ostensibly among friends.

    Kos' remarks and explanation were both refreshing - for frankness in the first case and for acknowledging reality in the second.  For some of us anyway, mercenaries and military adventures are anathema.
