Be concise. Give examples. Show your work.

And for your Tuesday morning political science assignment, identify your favourite passage from this. Here's mine:

"A responsible, rational opponent of the war in Iraq and of George W. Bush would say, "I am appalled by the disastrous war in Iraq, appalled by the wasted American lives, appalled by the moral wasteland of Iraq, and I loathe this president..."

Apparently, a visceral loathing of President Chimpy McChimpster that was once "Bush Derangement Syndrome" is now "responsible" and "rational". I guess that's progress. Sort of.

Take it away.

Toughie. Not sure whether it's this:

We are fighting an ideology, supported by millions of people, that wishes to conquer the world...

I'm mot sure what that "ideology" is, but with millions of supporters suddenly I don't think it's a "War on Terror" any more...

But maybe my favourite is this:

Nations and forces aligned with America against freedom-hating enemies will conclude that it is actually quite easy to defeat the United States of America.

How do you ask a man to be the last one to die to save face?
