We Are All Soldiers Now
I began this blog over 2 years ago for 2 reasons.

The first was to keep an evergrowing email list of folks both at work, and around the country informed without getting fired from my job for inappropriate internet use.

The second, and far more important reason, was as my own personal reaction to 9/11. This has remained a guiding principle of this site. It will remain so.

I may bounce around other topics, from Saturn to Haliburton and back again, but in the end, The War is the focus.

As part of that, I offer a reprise of my all time favorite Peggy Noonan essay, more appropriate now than the day it was written back in November of 2001.

As the conventions and General Election approach, the threat of another attack increases exponentially. Many analysts believe the purpose of an attack is to sway the election, much as the terrorists did in Spain.

If this is the case, it begs a very important question:

Who do you think the terrorists would prefer as President?

The easy and intellectually dishonest answer is neither George W. Bush or John Kerry. This avoids the question.

One of them will serve the next 4 years.

Who does Osama Bin Laden want in that position?

This, more than any other question, should influence your vote this November.
