DEMOCRATS WANTS TO LOSE THE WAR ON TERROR
As a pacifist, I don't think violence is ever an effective means to achieve a valued end. What's more, how can you fight a war on a metaphor? The potential for evil exists within each human being, and perpetuating more violence will certainly not erase this characteristic of human nature. See my most recent thoughts on the war on terrorism (bottom of the post).
Finally, please note that Punch still refuses to accept my invitation to enlist and fight in the war he feels is so important to the survival of our civilization. At the very least he could take a job inIraq "building democracy."
