War and Terrorism
Former Reagan Sec. of State George Schultz gives a great synopsis of how the world came to be in the situation we are now in - the events and decisions that brought us here and what should be done about it. He gives an excellent defense of Pres. Bush's decision to go to war in Iraq, reviewing the history of Iraq and the civilized world for the past 20 years.

In talking about the history of terrorism in the last 25 years he singles out 4 specific events:
1981 assassination of President Anwar Sadat, the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, the 2001 destruction of the Twin Towers, the bombs on the trains in Madrid...
Notice the first three all came in the first year of a new administration - Reagan, Clinton, Bush. Each event, possibly, a test of the new president to see what his method of response would be. Hmmm.

Schultz wraps it up this way:
If we put this in terms of World War II, we are now sometime around 1937. In the 1930s, the world failed to do what it needed to do to head off a world war. Appeasement never works. Today we are in action. We must not flinch. With a powerful interplay of strength and diplomacy, we can win this war.
That's why we need to keep George W. Bush in office. We are at war, and one of our parties doesn't know it.
