My comments on the matter:
If you kill the Bogeyman, who are people to fear?
If there is no fear, what are you to threaten them with?
If you cannot threaten people, how else do you coerce them?
If you cannot coerce people, how can you make them vote for you?
Watch actions... not words.
If you cannot make them vote for you, how do you get elected?
If you cannot get elected, then how do you...
Hmmm...A question there, eh?
What exactly *are* the administrations goals? 'w' certainly does seem stupid, but as inept as this administration seems, it *has* accomplished a few goals.
Look at what this administration *has* accomplished. That will reveal their true intentions.
Hint: GWoT, Bin Laden, et. al are a means, not an end.
Watch actions, not words.
