Reader comment on item: Hold Damascus Responsible [for Hezbollah Violence in Southern Lebanon]
in response to reader comment: Linda/not about oil

Yes, good points. Notice how media has in the past week or so been talking quite a bit about the looming threat of Islamic fascism. But they'll tire of it soon enough. Remember how the mantra for years was that it's all about oil and that "Bush lied," both of which are completely inaccurate.

But those who've been fighting the good fight for a decade or two will continue in their work. The heroes of our generation are the visionaries (who repeatedly warned of the threat) and the soldiers (amazing individuals), and the president who acted on it all rather than just relaxing and enjoying the perks of office, as Clinton did.

And what's very scary is that we may end up with some silly half baked politician as president in two years and we may end up with a weakened Congress in a few months. Yes, lots to worry about.
