Politics Is What Is Wrong
In a short but sweet post at Chicagoboyz explaining that the War To Defend the US from Terrorism is being undermined by ourselves, they state something I have been advocating for the past few years:
The problem is not military but political. The Bush administration lacks sufficient domestic support to prosecute the war at the pace favored by those of us who think Syria and Iran should be next (and should have been next a long time ago). We lack the resources to do much more than we are doing.
The list again:
1. President's failure to adequately explain the necessary steps needed to win.
2. Democrat use of any problem as political fodder to return topower.
3. Ridiculous spending on non-essential programs.
However, with all that, we are less vulnerable to attack than Europe, intellectually and politically led by appeasers remarkably similar to the Liberal Left of the U.S.
