It disturbs me that any people anywhere are standing "as one" behind Bush
and his plans. He isn't the brightest bulb in the pack. There are
known things on his agenda that will no doubt get slipped into
this "war" if given half a chance. He is calling for a "war" that is underdefined and interminable. We would do well to question it - a LOT.

Freedom and justice requiresmore of us than standing "as one". It
requires questioning everything every step of the way.
Blind faith in our leaders or in US leaders is very dangerous and an
insult to true democracy and true patriotism.
