The stupidity of this e-mail has even made me willing to reply - I am Duane's wife, a known Democrat and liberal, much to my husband's dismay.
1st of all to attack our military as an enemy of the people - boy, you obviously don't get out much and do not have any knowledge of the world around you. If we go to war, our military deserves our support - and here is why...
1. You can argue that we shouldn't be involved in the affairs of others - let them straighten it out - considering the amount of time that has been allowed for the middle east to fix its own problems, it is clear that someone else needs to bottom-line the problem and solve it.
2. Even if you don't want to go to war with Iraq, I think you will still agree that Saddam needs to go - the question is how. See point number 1.
3. In situations like this, time does not make the problem better. Think back 1 year ago - we had international consensus - we waited, trying to play "nice" and now look at the situation. Our problem is we waited.
If you want to protect the global markets - Saddam needs to go. If you want to protect human rights (a liberal position), Saddam needs to go. Bottom line.
Even this liberal can see we need to act.
