It is not Bush and it is not Hillary and it is not Daily Kos or Bill O'Reilly or Giuliani or Barack. It is global terrorists who use Islam to justify their hideous sins, including blowing up women and children.

“What kind of a sick bastard would write such a thing?
A bastard so sick of how splintered we are politically - thanks mainly to our ineptitude in Iraq - that we have forgotten who the enemy is.”
“...a sick bastard...”
This is called “Truth in Advertising.”
America can handle war, even long wars. What America can’t handle is a war where the President, in deference to political correctness, ties the hands of the warriors. If America thinks that we’re actually in it to win as quickly as possible with as few American casualties as practical, America will be behind the war, no matter how long it takes. America won’t, however, tolerate a half-hearted offensive where American lives are sacrificed in the vain attempt to gain approval from the left, foreign or domestic.
Very, very well said vetsvette.
He makes some good points, but fails to realize that the unity would only last a few months, just like last time. After the initial shock and trauma wears off, the American America haters will always feel most comfortable laying the blame on their own country. Even if a terrorist slammed a plane right into their home in LA, killing their family and their dog.

Perhaps........but this country is goin’ down the tubes at the moment.
He wishes we'd have another 9/11 so we would be united...but he seems to forget that such unity lasted only until we went to Afghanistan ("a quagmire" as Ted Kennedy and others called it).
Our president is not tying our soldiers' hands. I see those who say this as being just as illogical as this writer. The troop surge which is getting results is not done to appease the left--really, if Bush were going to appease the left or foreign governments, we never would have gone into Iraq. Some people are exhibiting the behavior this writer sees, which is the need for speed.
But we're not ONLY fighting a war--we're trying to build a country that can serve as an alternative to the kind of world Al Qaeda wants--ON the battleground of that war.
Do most people know how incredibly difficult that is?
The Ron Paul fools believe we can just up and leave Iraq. I have an idea along the lines of this columnist's "thinking"--why not just go into our kids' rooms and smother them? That way we would be guaranteeing they never have to live in a world run by Muslim wackjobs.
Bush is flawed in so many ways, but he's always seemed to me to be focused on what MUST be done in the Middle East, now, not later. I suspect this is due to his having briefings on national security and Al Qaeda's actions, the near-misses, the wiretaps, etc.
Abu Grahbe, Gitmo and other such embarassments are minor, MINOR flaws (which the critics seem to forget have been dealt with, the perps punished, as they should be). We have lost many brave Americans in Iraq who would be alive today if we had perfect foresight, perfect intel, and Iraqis who weren't cowed by decades under a dictator, living in the shadow of Muslim extremism. I hate to sound so glib, since I never served in the military, but FDR lost more men in one day of WW2 than we've lost so far in Iraq...and the stakes, while not as obvious, are just as high.
We don't need another 9/11. We need the bitching, whining, overly-coddled "moderates" and leftists in this country to get a clue. They strike me as a bunch of scared brats who don't believe things can REALLY be that bad.
All they have to do is look to the Middle East. If they don't get their **** together and join the president in trying to WIN this war--heck, if they don't first admit we are AT war--then we may get many more 9/11's, and the result will not be what this columnist wants, but outcries to retreat...and we'll have more 9/11's than you could imagine after that.
There, that's better.
There was a cool old Outer Limits episode where the goverment was forced to fake an Alien (from space) Invasion to bring the country back together again.
Also, allowing these mosques to operate makes about as much since as if we had allowed the German-American Bunds to operate in America during WWII. Every damn one of them should be shut down and SHUT DOWN NOW! Islam masquerading as a "religion" is ridiculous and anyone who says differently doesn't know it's history. Our ancestors didn’t risk life & limb to emigrate to this country just so a bunch of camel jockeys could come here, terrorize our women & children and make hamburger out or our families.
Sooner or later we are going to have to give the muzzies the jihad they so desperately want. And this time, we will finish the job.
Hate to ruin Bykofsky`s sick fantasy, but another 9/11, no matter how large it was, would not unite this country. Just the opposite would happen. It would disunite us even more. We are`nt even united on Afghanistan. A poll shows that a majority of Americans now oppose our being in Afghanistan;
MINOR flaws? UH excuse me?
So tell me how ‘we’re’ trying to build Iraq ..thus far what has been accomplished?
The WSJ publishes a LONG piece every two weeks detailing progress in Iraq.
I suppose you are one of those who sits there, arms folded, demanding news reports brought to your attention every day detailing the back-breaking work our troops are doing, the progress being made.
Do yourself a favor, do what I did--talk to those who've actually BEEN there. I know that's more difficult than sitting on your butt watching the tube all day, but it's always amusing to me how we complain about the biased media 24/7 around here, and then write foolishness as you do. Educate yourself about reality, and stop reading sources that only buttress your already-held beliefs. Unearned cynicism isn't the same as educating yourself about the truth.
It's been 24 hours and I still can't figure out why this idiot wrote this piece, other than to be provocative and get attention, which he obviously has gotten. I don't think this is the kind of attention he'd hoped for, though.
And hows this for reality?
You sure sound like you do.
According to that link, there've been over 1 million deaths due to the invasion.
Hear that sound?
It's your credibility going right down the toilet.
Even the totally-debunked Lancet estimate wasn't even half that.
You can push those lies elsewhere, but I'm not one of your Ron Paul flunkies.
THE NATION is one of your sources.
So ONE of my sources is one that you reject so the case is closed?? LOL! How dishonest you are.
My lies? Your mind is closed and you’re the one that told ME to seek other sources.. You’ve chose your name well, Darkwolf. You are in the dark and you have chosen to remain there.
How you get ONE from THE NATION and the completely false information about Iraqi casualties, I dunno. But I sure hope you're not home-schooling your kids with THAT kind of math.
I'm "dishonest"? What a laugh coming from someone who pushes lies about the number of Iraqi dead.
Your kind can't stand up to your "facts" being revealed as lies. All you can do is get in a snit--you have no facts, just urls to lies you're comfortable with.
You are living in the dark of The Nation and outright lies about Iraqi dead. Your "other sources" just HAPPEN to be liberal.
Let me guess--you're a Ron Paul supporter, right? You have the I.Q> to be one.
It would not unite us. Look, within hours the lefties were blaming Bush for the bridge collapsing.
That was because we didn't have evidence that the ragheads did it. Remember enemy number one to the sane is the ragheads...to the insane is GW...
If that is true .. then God help us all .. because we will be doomed
as for this article? .. Stu has lost his mind and has a real problem remembering history
yeah what he wrote was not fair or kind. and it is foolish that he would suggest we need what we are trying to avoid in order to avoid it
bleah. people who think the ends justify the means are always moonbats in my book
Lead by example, Bykofsky, you unfeeling wretch. Go die the glorious, memorable, exemplary death you meant for others.
