I am not by any means advocating the assassination of our president.

But how in hell can he make any moral argument against it when he puts forth policy like this?


Bush Outlines Doctrine of Striking Foes First
By DAVID E. SANGER

WASHINGTON, Sept. 20 — The Bush administration published today its first comprehensive rationale for shifting American military strategy toward pre-emptive action against hostile states and terrorist groups developing weapons of mass destruction. The strategy document also states, for the first time, that the United States will never allow its military supremacy to be challenged the way it was during the cold war.

In the 33-page document, Mr. Bush also seeks to answer the critics of growing American muscle-flexing by insisting that the United States will exploit its military and economic power to encourage "free and open societies," rather than seek "unilateral advantage." It calls this union of values and national interests "a distinctly American internationalism."
