The War in the GOP
All summer long, the debate over U.S. intervention in Iraq has whirled into full force. If the answers aren’t yet clear, at least the questions increasingly are.
And so far, the debate is almost entirely between two camps of Bush Republicans, with Democrats on the sidelines. One camp, often known as ”neoconservatives,” includes the president, the vice president, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and others in office.
The second camp, historically dubbed ”realists,” includes Baker and Scowcroft.
Should we wake the Democrats up and inquire if they would be so bold as to actually venture an opinion on the US going to war? Of course we do realize this would entail them actually taking a forceful stand on an issue.
