I am a bit appalled by the constant (vicious) attacks on Obama while we are ‘at war’. They look damned unpatriotic to me. Ordinarily our nation has unified when we have been attacked. Terrorists or Nazis — one does not attack the Commander-in-Chief defending us. I recall some unease among the Republicans about Roosevelt assisting the Brits — until we were hit ourselves on December 7. Then we pulled together. And there were some Hitler supporters among us, too. But they shut up quickly — a Bush doing business with the Nazi corporations fully involved by then in anti-Semitism.

I am going to leave this blog short. I have no desire to attack Republicans in detail. But with eyes, one can see. Hopefully it will stop. Obama has made every effort to reach out.

And so it is going.

“A war is just if there is no alternative, and the resort to arms is legitimate if they represent your last hope.” (Livy cited by Machiavelli)
