HARKIN'S BOILIN' BLOOD

DES MOINES -- Sen. Tom Harkin called Vice President Dick Cheney a "coward" for avoiding service in Vietnam and called on President Bush to end the "backdoor draft."
Harkin shot back at Cheney, who said in a visit to Iowa on Tuesday that presidential candidate John Kerry lacks a basic understanding of the war on terrorism and cannot make America safer.
"When I hear this coming from Dick Cheney, who was a coward, who would not serve during the Vietnam War, it makes my blood boil," Harkin said. "Those of us who served and those of us who went in the military don't like it when someone like a Dick Cheney comes out and he wants to be tough. Yeah, he'll be tough. He'll be tough with somebody else's blood, somebody else's kids. But not when it was his turn to go." -- Associated Press

I love this 'safer' stuff. Safer than what? How about plain old 'safe'? Imperialists like Cheney brought this situation on us, what makes anybody think they can get us out of it? And what is the Bush/Cheney plan? Kill every arab? Their war on terror is working as well as their war on drugs; it's not working, in fact it's making things worse.
