I think the divisions are more along political lines than the war. Anyone disagree? BTW, I don't think it's a GW phenonema, politics has gotten more divisive in general, from the beltway, out. It won't be better if a Dem is in the Oval Office, though the Republicans will not undermine a war effort in the way the Dems have, at least I hope not.

Partisan Divide on Iraq Exceeds Split on Vietnam
By ROBIN TONER and JIM RUTENBERG

WASHINGTON, July 29 — No military conflict in modern times has divided Americans on partisan lines more than the war in Iraq, scholars and pollsters say — not even Vietnam. And those divisions are likely to intensify in what is expected to be a contentious fall election campaign.

The latest New York Times/CBS News poll shows what one expert describes as a continuing “chasm” between the way Republicans and Democrats see the war. Three-fourths of the Republicans, for example, said the United States did the right thing in taking military action against Iraq, while just 24 percent of the Democrats did. Independents split down the middle.

“The present divisions are quite without precedent,” said Ole R. Holsti, a professor of political science at Duke University and the author of “Public Opinion and American Foreign Policy.” ...

Those trying to wipe out Christianlty and turn America into a socialist homeland for multiculturism are the divisive ones. We were divided way before 9/11 and Gws' election.

So I guess you are implying that GOP has 50% Christian, (which we know GOP has 20% of Jewish vote; 10% of black vote-which we'll assume is Christian), so the DNC has the remainder of Christian and other vote? Who makes up the other vote?

Going back to the beginning. What are you saying? Who is trying to wipe out Christianity? Who is trying to turn US into a socialist homeland for multiculturalism?

I guesss that'll be up to the Israelis. If they think it's "over" they can either go down fighting to the last man or leave and let the Arabs have everything that is left behind. I don't see the Israelis wailing "it's over" though.

If they are bright, which goes without saying, they will allow the rest of you to deal with. My guess, they will let the Arabs have at it, since that is what the 'world wants.' Give it to them.

Never again means getting out with your skin. They get it. I'm sure you are disappointed, no lampshades, maybe next time.

The GOP has failed at everything, even to appease its "core".

The middle class needs a lobby.

Vietnam began as a civil war.

Iraq ends as a civil war.
