We’re Not At War

Th Right Wing (Wrong Wing actually) when called on any of their unconstitutional actions always plays the “We’re at War” card. We are not at war. We had a major incident possibly perpetrated by villainous people but, as evidenced by subsequent incidents, this isn’t anything like a war. In the first place, a War must be declared by the Congress. Authorizing the President to take a police action does not amount to a declaration of war. All this destruction and loss of life in Iraq has nothing to do with fighting the enemy and everything to do with a zealot’s insanity. Remember Afghanistan? Remember bin Laden? I know it’s hard.
Have we really done very much to improve security here like inspecting cargo containers. No. That would impact business unfavorably.
This isn’t a war. This is actually a business and/or political plan.
