Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden's henchman, has called for a global jihad against "the crusaders."

Things in Iraq are falling apart, and the Bush administration must increase troop strength there rather than begin any type of withdrawal.

The President's approval ratings languish at about one third, and half of Americans have an unfavorable opinion of him.

58% of Americans don't like the job Congress is doing, and more Americans (45%-35%) want a Democratic Congress than wwant a Republican Congress.

58% of Americans don't think it is the responsibility of the US to resolve conflicts between Israel and other countries in the middle-east.

The right-wing, led by Newt Gingrich (!), has decided that "the war on terror" isn't working as a marketing slogan. People lump it together with the war on drugs, the war on poverty -- just another expensive government boondoggle to waste our tax dollars. So now we are fighting WORLD WAR III!!!

It is easy to understand why the right needs you to believe this. But for the love of God, don't.

Coming Soon-WW III-from the People Who Brought You Iraq

They never cease to amaze. The same people who have us in a mess in Iraq want to solve the problem they created by having more of our troops fighting a wider war throughout the Middle East and Iran.

Who is telling us this is WW III, and by implication, trying to justify a wider conflict to include Syria and Iran? The same geniuses who helped get us into Iraq. Newt Gingrich, William Kristol, Sean (high school) Hannity, Oliver North, William (the virtuous gambler) Bennett, Bill O'Reilly, Charles Krauthammer and Fred Barnes. Not one day of military service out of the whole group.

I guess they figure that if they can't win a smaller war they can win a larger one, though I fail to see how that follows. Do not expect even the U.K. to be around for the next misadventure the neocons want to undertake. Once Tony Blair is gone his successor has the perfect opportunity to get out of a bad situation and I think he'll take it.

Instead of figuring out a diplomatic way to get us out of the Middle East, these yo-yo's keep trying to find a military victory somewhere, anywhere, as an excuse for their strategic ineptitude.

The people are saying in poll after poll, "Get out", and the neocons are promising to drag them further into the Middle East quagmire.

This latest attempt won't work to scare the American people into voting Republican in November. Just the opposite, it will scare them into getting rid of their Republican representatives so that don't have to send even more troops to the Middle East and stay even longer.
