Are we safer? Beyond the Rhetoric.

The New York Times reports today that North Korean and Iranian nuclear programs "both have made significant progress" over the past year. Why did we decide to kill and die in Iraq when there were much more pressing issues on the international scene?

Despite the President's rhetoric that we have turned the corner, the American and Iraqi death toll continues to mount by the day. The situation on the ground is worse now than before the "handover of sovereignty."

What to do now? I don't know. But I do know that we will eventually have to deal with Iran and North Korea. And when we do, we can't handle it like we did Iraq. We can't go to war until all other options have been exhausted. We can't do battle without the international community. And we can't be led by a cowboy who doesn't take his Christianity seriously when it comes to war.
