Just remember this when you hear any of the Dems talk about Iraq

A quick observation before the Monday rush hits:

Something came to mind after having seen Howard 'I have a scream' Dean and Charles'Upchuck'Schumer on the Sunday morning programs talking about how [they feel] Bush and the government have 'lied' about this war and othercurrent issues. It is a scene from 'Dr Strangelove':

General Jack D. Ripper: Mandrake, do you recall what Clemenceau once said about war?
Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: No, I don't think I do, sir, no.
General Jack D. Ripper: He said war was too important to be left to the generals. When he said that, 50 years ago, he might have been right. But today, war is too important to be left to politicians. They have neither the time, the training, nor the inclination for strategic thought. I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

A little bit extreme, but the point is there. War is an issue best left to those who are of millitary thought. Politicians would rather do what is publically expedient or would get them re-elected and not make the hard choices. Put another way, if the current mindset of the Dems was in place after Pearl or before D-Day, suffice it to say the US and the world would a drastically different place.
