Remember WWII?

WWII lasted a little over three and a half years. The military involvement in Iraq has lasted for nearly four and a half years. In the first years of WWII the United States put together a program for armament which produced prodigious amounts of materiel for the war effort. Four and a half years into this military effort, the troops are still ill equipped, with armored vehicles back ordered.

The United States in 1942 was a nation gearing for war and the entire nation was on a war footing.

The nation in 2007 is not on a war footing.

The president and his administration and his political supporters have not sought to put the nation on a war footing.

Shame on him, shame on them, and shame on the rest of us for allowing them to get away with it for so long.

A global ideological struggle demands total commitment.

The courage of your conviction virtually demands your name, if we don't know you.
