'The difference between John McCain and Jim Webb is that Senator McCain respects our military and appreciates them, Senator Webb feels sorry for them.' You are an idiot for this statement, as you do read more..

Re: How to stop a war

I went to a Vietnamese wedding last weekend. There were many people there that could testify that the Vietnam War didnt end when U.S. troops left. The American leftwing support for the North Vietn... read more..


Take some bloggers

' absolute truth!' ?

I think I understand what Ken E is saying. And I'll use the mistakes made during the Bremer 'ViceRoy-ship' as the point made. The withdrawal into a bunker mentality, during a time when we shou... read more..


Just one writer on base

I have been reading Yon for years and he is the only blogger that I felt compelled to donate money to. Why? Because he puts a brain on the sense that is connected to a set of open eyes. Many may disco... read more..


Enemy of the good.

#26, #35. Huntress, pettyfog; It's not philosophy, it's tactics. A standard ploy of the left is to hold up some arbitrary absolute ideal, observe you're not meeting it, and deny you any right to act read more..


Senatorial offer

If Obama wants to 'man up' on Iraq, he'd take you up on this one. Of course, he would risk getting a bunch of fantasies shattered; after all, this guy voted to defund the troops in the field. McCa... read more..



A few Republicans might, but probably no DemocRats will (except for Lieberman). It's far easier to stay in the US and complain, than it is to actually go see. Then they'd have to admit the truth. W... read more..


no reconstruction plan

This is a good idea. I hope you get some takers on your offer. Tangentially though, I wish you'd remove the phrase stating that we had "no reconstruction plan". Of course we did - spend $15 billi... read more..

Michael, In case you hadn't contacted Dawn, I leave this note for her. Dear Lady, my sincere condolences on your great loss of one of our bravest. If you go to the top of this page and look to t... read more..


Good points, but....

Michael, I disagree on just a couple of points: The intelligence was NOT shoddy. Sadaam Hussein was a WMD-wielding, terrorist supporting, megalomaniac. He was just one of the threats to U.S. forces... read more..


offer to senators

No senator will take you up on your offer. The war became a means to an end for one party to dislodge another from power. No need to interject facts into the argument. Part of Europe (Germany, Fr... read more..


Re: Complete Lunacy

Galloway complains about propaganda and then produces this trash? Then his sycophants come and deride everyone who disagrees with them and is not in the service as unworthy? This is truly Orwell... read more..

A Sycophant

Oops! My bad for misquoting you - you actually called Galloway's article trash rather than propaganda, didn't you? Well, I guess your intent really was clear then, eh? Is this representative of you... read more..

I think that you speak for more people than you realize.
