I'd love to see the Democrats argue against democracy. If nothing else just for the entertainment value.
Totally with you on this one.I'd love to hear the Democrats argue against Saint John.
True, but the one thing Bush has not done is cave in to the defeatists like a rotten pumpkin, the very thing which Moran now advises him to find the "courage" to do..
As long as he doesn't cave we have time to change the terms of the debate.
It is the old "maybe pigs will fly" strategem. If we help maybe pigs can fly.
It is time to stop focusing on the doctors and the hospital and take a look at the real patient. Iraqi Democracy.
This is not about the "Iraqi people" such as they are. It is about the Iraqi democrats. Who may even be a minority. Doesn't matter.
It will be impossible for real Americans, even of the leftist variety, to repudiate democracy with any degree of conviction.
What will they say: Iraq is not ready? So what do we do, wait until they are ready and invade again?
Arabs can't do democracy? That is racism.
Then hit them with a good old JFK right between the eyes:
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
John F. Kennedy
