    We ARE fighting a war against people that want to kill us. George W. Bush is fighting it in a way that  will kill more of us.

    President Kerry will be able to make it a world-wide effort.

      Don't blame me for the Iraq debacle. I never supported John Kerry. I supported Howard Dean.

    •  It's Only a War Because GWB Sez So (none)
      Commander Bunnypants' War on Terra

      Could be an apt title for a children's book, I suppose. But this is less about fighting a war, and more about stopping an international criminal organization. The lack of identifying an opponent in the pop-name for this initiative creates a circumstance in which the notion of an endgame does not exist.

      Is our opponent merely al Qaeda? Or are we fighting Hamas, Hezbollah, and Jihad al Islam?

      How about the Irish Republican Army?  Aryan Nation and the KKK?  No?  Why not?  Isn't the enemy terrorism in all forms? No?

      Plenty of folks on the right identify the enemy as all of Islam. Others conflate NGOs with sovereign states.

      This ball of confusion will be resolved through clear focus, both by leadership and the public. The GOP offers none; instead they have tied their own political desires to never-ending war. Already the next opponents are being discussed by the neocons, who seemingly discredited among the general populace, still are the heart and soul behind the atmosphere of fear that the right uses as leverage.

      The lunatic-fringe ultraleft offers immediate withdrawal, which threatens to help push the conflict to a much wider stage. Wisdom suggests finding consensus among people of good will that offers hope for stability for the Shia, Kurds, Sunni, Turkoman and other minorities in war-ravaged Iraq.
