With civilian leadership, comes the responsibility to LEAD and make the hard decisions. I heard GW say today that he will pow wow with the Generals, and then their recommmendations will be implemented, or words to that affect. I think that Generals should be TAKING orders because the McClellans are more common than the Grants. They're too close to the suffering of their men and the inevitable collateral damage to do what must be done. Frankly, we shouldn't expect them to make those decisions. Only one man can do that. The Commander in Chief.
I fear that all of the carping about his lack of military experience,combined with the lies of traitors like jack mytha, causes President Bush not to follow through on what he know's -deep down inside- must be done. A real, unflinching and successful display of American might. Not of the same magnitude as Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August of '45, but just as decisive and unsentimental. Only then will we have a truly trustworthy ally like Japan. Remember, Japan was ruled by a militaristic culture of death with a heavy religious influence - and one could argue - virtually as fanatical as our current enemy. The left would say that we demonized the Japanese in order to be able to do the unthinkable. The right says we simply identifyed them for what they were and did what had to be done in order to save countless more lives. I concur with the later.
It took American right, via American might, along with good old American Capitalism to turn a sick country bent on genecide in China and Nazi allied world domination, into one of the greatest economic powers in the world. And oh yeah, they're free and they don't threaten ANYONE else. Not even their mortal enemies unfortunately. 2spot
