Any free or semi-free nation has the right (although not the duty) to invade any dictatorial slave state for the purpose of liberating it, or to extinguish a threat to the free nation's existence.Harvey is right that Bush seems only moderately supportive of a policy that was initially dubbed, somewhat ironically in retrospect, the Bush Doctrine. Of course, as I just mentioned, when he pursues the policy, he tends to do it ineptly, so I'm not sure it matters that much.
In 2001 we put the world on notice that they would either have to root out the terrorist organizations in their midsts, or we would do it for them. Ron Paul is against this policy, which is why I'm against Ron Paul.
Conversely, W is only moderately supportive of this policy, which is why I'm only moderately supportive of W.
Hopefully the next president will understand that the War on Terror doesn't just need to be fought, it needs to be won.
