    because we're just not ruthless or cunning enough... we worship at the false altar of freedom and human rights in a time of war when we can afford to our enemies neither.

    (at least if you're of the john mccain/michael scheuer set, whose criticism and ideas are starting to make a lot of sense)

    I agree with a lot that Dr. Scheuer says in his article but not his conclusion: that we will lose the war against the terrorists. As long as George W. is president, that will not happen. But if the Democrats should get back in power, all bets are off.

    I think that's his point. The enemy within is doing their damnedest to ensure we lose. People/organizations such as that should be as feared as al Qaeda.

    Do you agree with Scheuer's hypothesis that we will lose this war?

    When I read the article, remembrances of Lyndon Johnson, Walter Kronkite, Vietnam, etc., came tumbling back to mind. In my opinion, the anti-American, cowardly PC crowd can bluster all they want, but as long as George W. is president, he will pay them no heed and we will not lose the war.

    He still falls for a lot of lib negativism dressed up as "analysis".

    But still, he's one of the sharpest young'n's I know. :rock: Nato Rocks!

    Except that, contrary to the fever dreams of the kook Dem conspiracy-theorists, he isn't going to be President forever. Democrats can't wait to help the world be destroying their own country's status in the world. It is their mission in life. Just read the posts by the libs on this board. They don't care about Al Qaeda or anything. Terrorism is just one of those things like hurricanes. Happens every so often, what are ya gonna do, best not to overreact. Now BUSH, there's a threat to America if they ever saw one.

    My quarrel was not with NATO or even with a lot of what Dr. Scheuer says in his article, which was thought-provoking and well written. My quarrel was with Dr. Scheuer's conclusion that we would lose the war against the terrorists.
