    Hm….. now I’m curious. When was the last time a Democrat had two terms in office?

    Any road, I see this as an encouraging ’toon!

    “He ignored the first attack on the World Trade Center. He tried to disband our military."That is an outright lie. Reagan and Bush ignored attacks against American interests. Clinton retaliated. He also put together an anti-terrorism task force, which W subsequently defended and ignored. Show us your evidence he tried to disband the military.

    I was in the military during the period you mention, and that isn’t what happened. GHWBush started the military drawdown with the collapse of the Soviet Union. He referred to it as a “peace dividend”.The first two things I saw being eliminated via the Bush admin. was personnel and our hydrofoil fleet. It was an opportunity to get rid of old ships/systems and surplus/unproductive people. When Clinton came into office, I saw nothing different in the reduction policies, it was a continuation of what Bush was doing. As for nukes, Clinton did what Reagan started in creating “a world free of nuclear weapons”. Not everything worked, for either administration, but labelling the force reduction as an attempt to disband the military is an out-and-out lie.

    Having a poor response to terrorist attacks isn’t the same thing as “He tried to disband our military”. The effective thing to do would have been to strengthen our intelligence capabilities, but that has nothing to do with getting rid of dead weight that was designed to combat the Soviet Union.

    When the only tool you have is a hammer (war) every problem (terrorism) looks like a nail. You think blowing up things and killing people will force our enemies to leave us alone…. what a coincidence, that’s just what Islamists think.

    “Tactical” nuclear weapons? Good grief- sounds too stupid to be true, but probably isn’t.
