••can ye pass the acid test?••

ye who enter here be afraid, but do what ye must -- to defeat your fear ye must defy it.

& defeat it ye must, for only then can we begin to realize liberty & justice for all.

time bomb tick tock? nervous tic talk? war on war?

or just a blog crying in the wilderness, trying to make sense of it all, terror-fried by hate radio and FOX, the number of whose name is 666??? (coincidence?)

go odom

william odom, retired 3-star general and director of the national security agency for 3 years, was on mclaughlin group sunday. he countered what he considers the 9 main arguments for staying in iraq:

withdrawal=civil war
world against withdrawal
withdrawal emboldens insurgency
withdrawal creates terror haven
withdrawal invites iran's influence
withdrawal spreads unrest
withdrawal=more sunni/shiite clashes
iraq's police & military unprepared
withdrawal dishonors troops

civil war here
withdrawal gains world support
occupation emboldens insurgency
iraq now terror training ground
occupation invites iran's influence
occupation spreads unrest
occupation=more sunni/shiite clashes
unpreparedness not problem; disloyalty is problem
withdrawal honors troops
