"In 1984 I wrote that WMD and terrorism would pose a threat for US national security. If two or three cities are destroyed because of terrorism both the US and Israel’s democracy will be eroded and both will become greater dictatorial societies."
"My Prediction to you is that either before we lose a city or, if we are truly stupid, after we lose a city, we will adopt rules of engagement that use every technology that we can find to break up their capacity to use the internet, to break up their capacity to use free speech, and to go after people who want to kill us to stop them recruiting people before they get to reach out and convince young people to destroy their lives while destroying us."

Hillary was the first one to say that she'd bring the troops home from iraq if they are still there when she takes office.
"U.S. policy must be clear and unequivocal: We cannot, we should not, we must not permit Iran to build or acquire nuclear weapons," the Democrat told a crowd of Israel supporters. "In dealing with this threat ... no option can be taken off the table."
Clinton spoke at a Manhattan dinner held by the largest pro-Israel lobbying group in the U.S., the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Some 1,700 supporters applauded as she cited her efforts on Israel's behalf and spoke scathingly of Iran's decision to hold a conference last month that questioned whether the Holocaust took place.
"To deny the Holocaust places Iran's leadership in company with the most despicable bigots and historical revisionists," Clinton said, criticizing what she called the Iranian administration's pro-terrorist, anti-American, anti-Israeli rhetoric.

In as much as I like the idea of tax reform, I can't say that I see any indications that the Republicans are revving up to sell it. Gingrich is conducting his own seminars and presentations, and while it really is a good idea...I just don't see the ground swell for it that ape is alluding to.
Again, I need to point out that the vote in 2006 wasn't about anything else except the war. it was a referendum on the war. Bush's positive economic performance has been strongly overshadowed by the perception of incompetence regarding the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. On the basis of this by itself, it won't be hard to imagine most Americans going to the polls in '08 to vote for anyone who is not a Republican.
Within the last 48 hours, as I write this, Hillary has stated the one thing that most unhappy voters want to hear. She'll bring the troops home if she is elected. A lot of people don't like Hillary, that's true. But...they will vote for a shot at ending the war in Iraq. The political junkies among our audience here will recognize that what Hillary has done so far is very Machivellian. She's making herself known for what she will do rather than what she has done.
Don't make the mistake of thinking that I support her. I'm a trained political scientist, and I'm looking at this through a non-partisan lense. I'm calling it like I see it. Her tactics are better than those of her competition at this time.
