In Defense of the West

In the battle over the defense of the West and how we should accomplish, I'd like to refer visitors to a few editorials that confirm that a "consensus is building" as viewed by Taking Sides. Diana West's suggestions to the President and therefore to all of us for "Fighting Shariah Law": Retool US War August 18, 2006 Fighting Shariah Law August 25, 2006 In an opinion piece on August 27, 2006, Cal Thomas combines both "wars" in Iraq and the other war. Two other commentary/opinion pieces which may be of interest are "Preserving security" by William Hawkins and "New Mideast realities" by Claude Salhlani both in the Washington Times, 8/27/06.

The Declaration of War resolution, once introduced, will alter the conversation. It will mean that each Congessman can be asked if they favor that resolution. Most will say "no", because we are already doing x,y, and z, however they will probably have to acknowledge who the enemy is. Further, if and when the next attack comes, the citizens and the media can say: OK, now, after this attack..., do you support the War resolution? It creates a dynamic.

Felix, thank you. I'm going to take a closer look at the Declaration and after this political rush is over, see what I can do about getting the idea in front of some political folks. If you want to, e-mail me so I can work with you more directly. I am new at this but the other day, I tried to copy some of my comments/responses I had typed on your site. I wanted to keep the ideas and have them available when I start putting attention of the declaration. Hope I didn't mess up anything or make your system go crazy.
