Bush and the Draft

Bush says there will be no draft, and you can believe him if you want. But this is what Bush said last weekend about how he's going to win the war on terror:

"Our goal is to defeat terrorism by staying on the offensive."

What do you think "staying on the offensive" means? More than likely, it means attacking Iran, Syria, North Korea, or all three at the same time, and almost certainly before we've finished the job in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Where is Bush going to get the troops for that?

Offense wins games, defense wins championships.

The Bush administration is a bunch of offensive coordinators with a west-coast offense. Might have worked to overthrow governments, but to win the wider war on terror, we're going to need a head coach. One who knows that more offense means more troops, and more defense means a safer world.
