Global war on terror non-existent, says Edwards

The Judge Report passes along this news item:

Democrat John Edwards Wednesday repudiated the notion that there is a "global War on Terror," calling it an ideological doctrine advanced by the Bush administration that has strained American military resources and emboldened terrorists.

Mr. Going's response: A photo he took of the smoldering ruins of the World Trade Center. And video of John "F-Troop" Edwards on the O'Reilly Factor from October 2001. In response to O'Reilly's question about how Democrats would respond if the war widens to "maybe Libya, maybe Syria, maybe the Sudan, maybe even Iraq," Edwards pledged that Democrats would be "united with the President throughout this war on terrorism."

Meanwhile, former Oklahoma Rep. Kevin Calvey is happy that Congress has voted to feed him and his colleagues in Iraq for a few more months:

Very decent of Congress to let us serving here in Iraq have bread and bullets, don't you think?

Looks like the Democrats in Congress are not so principled about the war as they previously claimed.

If they really think the war is immoral, then why cave in on the war funding bill?

The answer is that for many of them, this is all a big political game.

More Edwards:

SATIRE: Scrappleface reports on Edwards' plan for Universal Hair Care.

NOT SATIRE: Edwards denies involvement in $400 haircut: “Other people arrange these things, and I wasn’t personally involved in it.”

Bates, suppose you do a piece on the history of terrorism. It's really nothing new. Global warming, the Kennedy lone shooter, and war on terrorism...all HOAXES.

Please, enough already with Democrats' support of the troops. Democrats have been for funding the troops all along, as has the President. It's just that Democrats are now demanding progress.

Our President has perverted and damaged the War on Terrorism by using it as a pretext for regime change in Iraq. Americans were united and the world was with us as we went after the Taliban in Afghanistan in response to 9/11. Then this adminstration, in a lethal combination of arrogance, ignorance, incompetence and hyperbole, overreached by invading Iraq. This united our enemies and divided and alienated our friends. Even this dangerous action could have been overcome with competent planning and execution, but competence is beyond our adminstration. It is clear to the majority of the country that victory is now beyond our grasp and the best we can do is minimize the damage.

I am very concerned about terrorism and radical Islam. It's a shame that the actions and approach of our adminstration have strengthened terrorists and Islamic radicals.

I have to agree with the previous comment. Bush has absolutely screwed up this "war". He was completely right to invade Afghanistan. He was as wrong as he could be to invade Iraq and he has done irreparable damage to this country by doing so.

By the way, if we are in a war, where is the sacrifice by the Amerian people. Any sacrifice? Maybe a long gas line? Something? The idea that we are in a nation-wide war effort is ridiculous. Unless someone has a friend or relative in military they know nothing about this war. Perhaps that might explain why some people don't think it's a war.
