    Bush said it himself, his political base is with the “haves and have-mores”.

    Bush has made the world an unstable place and unhospitable for Americans to travel in. Bush has wasted a massive amount of the counrty’s resources in a useless war. The wasted resources could’ve been spent on domestic programs, from security to education and infrastructure. Bush has been using the lives of those who died on 9/11 and those who have died in the fighting in Iraq to consolidate the power of his “base”.

    Mussolini had a few thoughts that make me think that history is repeating itself. Please remember Cheney’s description of an “indefinately” long war on terrorism.
    “And above all, Fascism, the more it considers and observes the future and the development of humanity quite apart from political considerations of the moment, believes neither in the possibility nor the utility of perpetual peace… War alone brings up to its highest tension all human energy and puts the stamp of nobility upon the people who have the courage to meet it.”

    Maybe you should listen to what the troups REALLY think of Dubya and his insane “foreign policy” (ie. world domination tour) over there in Iraq:
    The megalomaniac Hussein? What does that make us, since we (Reagan-Bush) were holding his hand during the execution of all those atrocities that made him so famous? Remember when Carter tried to base foreign aid on the lack of human right abuses? He got his ass kicked for it by the GOP, like when Jesse Helms wrapped his arms around one of the South American death squad leaders and declaring him a saint.
    By the way, here’s another soldier’s perspective on war:
    That soldier’s name is Smedley Butler (Marine Corp general. He foiled a facist takeover here in the states back in the 30s. It’s all part of the Congressional record, but it has been hidden quite well by our media.
    PS: Maybe you should watch less of Fox “news” and more of the Daily Show:
