  •  Perhaps Dubya is Reagan-like . . . (none)
    Several U.S. officials and terrorism experts familiar with that revision effort said the new report will show that the number of significant terrorist incidents increased last year, perhaps to its highest level in 20 years.

    Which means that ::drumroll:: terrorism is at its worst since Reagan was spreading joy throughout the world.

    Colin Powell had better watch his back.  Dick and The Donald (the one who should be fired) will not be happy.

    The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.

    •  Belligerent Republican foreign policy (none)
      I've always wondered why more people don't realize how unsafe for Americans the world was under Reagan, particularly in the Middle East. Under Clinton the threat was less personal and the targets of terrorism were more symbolic. Now we're back to random attacks against individual Americans, such as the contractor gunned down in Saudi Arabia yesterday.

      It seems to me the belligerent foreign policy strategy of military action around the world is what leads to this increase. Clinton exported help and hope, Bush is exporting fear and death.

      •  Ah, you just don't get it (none)
        Hope is for sissies.  The Evil-doers only understand one thing, force.  We're actually winning the WoT because, as in Reagan's proud day, we're drawing the Evil-doers out into the open.  The world is one big fly trap and America's military might is the Big Fly-Swatter.

        Now where did I put that bottle of Old Grand Dad . . .
