DOWD

Did Maureen Dowd's point fly over your head? She wrote "Men who had refused to go to an untenable war themselves were now refusing to find an end to another untenable war that they had recklessly started." Your reply is: "Most American men did serve in Vietnam, and remain pround [sic] to this day that they did." EXCUSE ERROR. WILL ATTTEMPTE NOT TO DO IT, TI OD AGAINEE.

Huh?

The point Dowd was trying to make was that many of the planners of the Iraq war had no military experience. For several of them, that's absolutely true. Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, none of them served in any war. TRUE.

What is your response to that point? I don't like Maureen Dowd, but I do think it's a legitimate point. Can people who know nothing about war be trusted to lead the nation into war, and more importantly, have the knowhow to WIN it?

OF COURSE. WILSON FOR ONE, FDROOSEVELT FOR ANOTHER.
