Re:The Real Reason We Went to War

I am sorry, but I do not subscribe to the conspiracy theory of life. This is not a novel. There is no pretext or subtext for going to war. There are reasons why. I am sorry, but anyone, left or right, who subscribes to the conspiracy theory to explain anything in order to advance their political perspective is dopey. It is sort of like the black helicopter wackos.

As for the comparison between Limbaugh and Moore. Limbaugh's opinons may be wrong, and they often are, but there are very few examples of him knowingly and willfully lying. If you want to compare the two, look at Limbaugh's criticisms of Clinton versus Moore of Bush. Both are just as harsh, but Limbaugh did not invent the facts to support his criticism.

A free society cannot remain free if it cannot tolerate people asking hard questions. The problem is that questions are not being asked and answers not being given. People are just making indictments without asking anything because it advances their political call.

This has resulted in the Bush administration talking about preemptive war and preventative war. This was no such thing. We merely resumed active hostilities.

By the way, what is a neocon? Are you making a weak attempt at calling me fascist?
