  Random Thoughts on This War
"There is a temptation to see the terrorist act as simply the erratic work of a small group of fanatics. We make this mistake at great peril, for the attacks on America, her citizens, her allies, and other democratic nations in recent years do form a pattern of terrorism that has strategic implications and political goals. And only by moving our focus from the tactical to the strategic perspective, only by identifying the pattern of terror and those behind it, can we hope to put into force a strategy to deal with it." --Ronald Reagan

"Unless we win this war, 9/11 was just the beginning. And that is why we cannot fight an uncivilized, evil and merciless enemy the same way we have fought our previous wars. And if this means we have to take extraordinary steps to get information that will save American lives, if this means we must imprison captured terrorists indefinitely, then so be it. There is much at stake here in terms of freedom and lives and a livable world. And we will lose it all if our leaders knuckle under to the whining and complaining and the irrational demands of some people in the Congress, and the news media and other public places who refuse to face reality." --Lyn Nofziger

And one from the left:
"[T]he first several U.S. presidents were certainly revolutionaries and might have been called 'terrorists' by the British crown, after all." --NBC's Brian Williams, proof that yet another village is going without an idiot.
