    Bush is going to bomb Iran before he leaves

    Pace was against invading Iran, Mullen is not. The bombing of Iran will be a primarily naval mission hence the decision to call upon Adm Mullen.

    You think his approval rating is low now, just wait until our commander in chief opens his third front just before leaving office.

    I'm not worried. Hillary will just use "Diplomacy" and all will be well with the World.

    Nope, pre-emptive warfare is NOT a value I hold (or any Conservative should hold), despite what Bush or the Rpeublicans ight try and tell you.

    But AFTER we've been hit, IF we've been unable to avoid it.....well, after the attack, it IS a value to reign down vengeance upon those who would do us harm.

    It is NOT a value to give them American Rights and trails as if they had stolen a pack of cigarettes.

    I agree, but it's tough to cleanly define that group.

    Because the Enemy has made it tough. So what do you do?

    Do you do as Liberals want, and give the entire World American Rights and a Day in Court and Innocent till Proven beyond any reasonable doubt?

    Or do you do as the Not-so-Conservatives Want and start going around the World blowing up whatever floats ones fancy, BEFORE they have attacked you??

    No. Neither.

    You form a new branch of the Millitary designed to quietly inflitrate hostile terroroty and kill, yes KILL, selected people and groups that are believed to be against us, i.e. AQ and Islamic Fundamentalist Clerics.

    Will some innocents die? Yes. And thats too bad, next time make sure your leaders or your friends don't choose to attack the Big Sleeping Dog that is the USA.

    I will agree with attacking Iran if everyone agrees to start the draft.

    How can we "give" them these rights? I thought it was self evident that all men were created equal and endowed by the creator with certain unalienable rights?

    frankly neither should the American public
