It’s gratifying to hear a Republican say this:

The catchall phrase “the war on terrorism,” in all honesty, has no more meaning than if one wants to wage a war on criminal gangsterism. Terrorism is a tactic. You can’t have a war against a tactic. It’s deliberately vague and non-definable in order to justify and permit perpetual war anywhere and under any circumstances. Don’t forget the Iraqis and Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with any terrorist attack against us – including that on 9/11. Special interests and the demented philosophy of conquest have driven most wars throughout all of history. Rarely has the cause of liberty, as it was in our own revolution, been the driving force.

It’s also disturbing that we so rarely hear Democrats saying it.

Ron Paul in the Republican primary debate:

It’s good for Ron Paul that 65% of Americans oppose the war in Iraq. Unfortunately they are mostly not Republican primary voters.

Now the bad news: Paul doesn’t think the science is settled on global warming.

Vote for Ron Paul: sidestep the coming apocalypse of the Forever War, but bring closer the coming environmental apocalypse.

It’s a dilemma.
