Olive branches a little late


I never thought I would see the day when some Republicans would become unpatriotic and soft on terrorism. It simply amazes me that the same ones doing the name-calling during the Iraqi war are now so opposed to this no-fly zone with coalition help. And some usual hawks, John McCain, never get enough of war and no matter what the president does, it is wrong.

I hope the doves in the party aren’t right in their skepticism (as I have my own). But where was it when they should have had some about Iraq? We weren’t allowed to question or criticize Bush, and I am still waiting for an apology to those of us who were right.
