Leave it to the "leftist" to invoke "Nazi" to further their argument, even though it has absolutely no parallel. TJM, that was a stupid and inflammatory comparison to make, one that you will be unable to back up.

My absolute favorite thing in this thread (and in all threads about this subject) is how those opposed cannot come up with a single reason (although they constantly cry "there are many!") why we shouldn't have gone in and certainly no alternatives.

It was months after the terrorist attacks before we took military action in Afghanistan. Of course, it was also years before we decided to help out against the Nazis, much to the dismay of 6 million German Jews. Thank God for our faithful opposition then, eh?

(And there was plenty of opposition from the left. Look at the official messages from the real leftist parties in the nation, Green, Socialist, etc...) Democrats aren't leftist, so maybe you're just confused.

[quote]One thing I have to give the Bush government is that they've done what Ive been saying was needed for a long time. America needs an enemy, people are getting too... bored for lack of better words. A common enemy unites people REALLY well, better even then a common cause. <hr></blockquote>

kinda like "1984", pick an evil thing and go after it. This is what "Mein Kampf" said right ? And what Castro has done for years right (vs US)? Its not fassist, its just pragmatic!

You guys have it nailed!

Bush helped orchestrate the 9/11 attacks so he could have a foil. Wow, what would we do without these minds working overtime to get to the very root of complex issues!?
