"The War President"

Interesting article from the NY Times writer Klugman, he reiterates the need for accountability for actions which led this country into the ill-fated Iraqi occupation which costs our nation hundreds of lives per month and getting worse all the time. I was watching our war prez yesterday on C-Span and he was off on a tangeant again and referred to the war as a quagmire, finally telling the american people the truth though he let his guard down and would never admit to saying it.

Also Young Republicans share their leaders Chickenhawk tendencies:

In more than a dozen interviews, Republicans in their teens and 20s offered a range of answers. Some have friends in the military in Iraq and are considering enlisting; others said they can better support the war by working politically in the United States; and still others said they think the military doesn't need them because the U.S. presence in Iraq is sufficient.

"Frankly, I want to be a politician. I'd like to survive to see that," said Vivian Lee, 17, a war supporter visiting the convention from Los Angeles,

Lee said she supports the war but would volunteer only if the United States faced a dire troop shortage or "if there's another Sept. 11."

"As long as there's a steady stream of volunteers, I don't see why I necessarily should volunteer," said Lee, who has a cousin deployed in the Middle East.

In an election season overwhelmed by memories of the Vietnam War, the U.S. military's newest war ranks supreme among the worries confronting much of Generation Y'ers. Iraq is their war.

"If there was a need presented, I would go," said Chris Cusmano, a 21-year-old member of the College Republicans organization from Rocky Point, N.Y. But he said he hasn't really considered volunteering.

Chickenhawks. Just like Bush and Cheney. Dying for your country is alright with them as long as other Americans do the dying. The cowards.
