"Once the balloon goes up, I think it's treason to act politically against the war."

That wouldn't fly if Clinton were the CinC, and it won't fly now. Otherwise, the President could deploy troops anywhere, anytime and it would be our patriotic duty to support it.

The real mistake is to continue to let our men and women die for no good reason.

To finally come to terms as agreed upon that ended hostilities in Gulf War 1, to include 12 resolutions is not good enough?

Or is it that AMERICANS were fired upon everyday through the years by anti-aircraft fire?
If this were 1940 ish this would not even be a question. Firing upon Americans is an act of war plain and simple.

Millions of human beings being slaughtered is good enough reason for me.

I don't remember any promenent Republicans arguing that Clinton should stop actions in Bosnia. There were some Reps that tepidly suggested that we were in there for the wrong reasons, but I remember none who suggested we leave after the action began.

Politically opposing a war is a move that litterally "aids and comforts" the ememy, giving them reason to hang on until the domestic political anti-war movement wins.

Almost 60k Americans were killed in SE Asia for nothing, because the anti-war people "won" it for the North. Books have been published since 1975 by North Vietnamese leaders saying they hung in there because of the US domestic help they were being given.

Between 2-3 million people died in SE Asia after the North "won" in 1975. The American anti-war people have blood on their hands.

The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are accomplishing anti-terrorism goals beyond their borders. I'm proud of what Bush is doing, and I support it.
