GUEST,Frankham BS: Clark for Prez (85* d) RE: BS: Clark for Prez 26 Sep 03


Dear GUEST,pdq
The 80 people you mentioned at Waco were murdered by the leader of the so-called Davidian cult.

Hi Amos, Having had no prior governmental qualifications means not having held public office but extensive military experience. Describes George Washington perfectly.

That said, a general in the military must have executive experience which may or may not translate into running an efficient government.
I would suggest, though without really knowing too much about it, that it would take political experience to survive the military hierarchy.

The guy currently running the show is on record as a failed businessman in oil.

Hi Charley,

As I understand the war in Kosovo, it was given the green light by the Clinton administration. Not clear as to why this nearly started WWIII. It seems to me that the Bush invasion would fit this description more neatly.


I can't understand why the Waco incident has become such a cause celebre against the US government. Do people really think that if the Davidian cult were left alone that it would govern itself within the guidelines of the law? Do they really think that those buildings and the people in them would be spared if let alone from another kind of brutality? Maybe this is a rhetorical question based on the idea that there is something inimically wrong with government, a Libertarian idea. Something goes wrong, it has to be the government's fault?

It may well be that he spearheaded the invasion of Panama. But where is this idea come from that he advised Israel on using force to subdue Palestinian? I'd like to see more proof of this (not that it isn't possible).

I understand that the term "cowboy" regarding military agression was coined by Adolph Hitler (which is neither here nor there).

You are right though. These questions need answering. Dean also has claimed support for Israel. This may entail subduing Palestinians as well judging from the actions of the Sharon government.

Damn, it's the lesser of two (or more) evils again! Apparently God in His wisdom didn't care to make politicians particularly honorable and made them notably flawed. :)
