NUKE UM

"Nuke em", I often see this while visiting around the blogosphere and my usual first reaction is to recoil at the mere idea of setting loose those terrible WMD's. Being a child of the 1950's and having seen all the old movies such as "Fail Safe", "Doctor Strangelove" and many more coupled with my real nightmares as a child about those looming mushroom clouds the mere idea of a nuclear explosion scares the hell out of me.

Having gotten that out of the way, I've come to face a new reality and that reality is that one day we will be confronted with the cold hard truth of using the nuke or losing the battle. Tactical nukes are at the ready should they be needed. However, when such things are mentioned the American left recoils for they would not shoot so much as a spitball at the enemy and have shown consistently they will not even hurl insults their way. Although they have no problems with calling those of us on the right every name under the sun. It is becoming increasing obvious to me that the only enemy the American left sees is those fellow Americans on the right, and they feel if they can defeat those all other enemies in the world will miraculously vanish in a cloud of cleaning smoke.

War is not a game and the timid have no place on the battlefield or in the command post. To play at war is to lose and before losing I say those frightening words, "nuke um".

BE CONFIDANT!
Most people who argue politics get angry because they really do not have a handle on their subject, though a strong feeling. It is easier to gain confidence than you think. Just look at the roots to understand the whole tree. Answers or, better, questions, flow easily when the roots are clear. There are only two sides to a political argument. One side says community interests are more important than are individual interests, and the reverse is the other side, as cited on claysamerica.com. Look at this site and take the ten simple steps to have a clear and confidant vision from which all issues are easily grasped and discussed. Claysamerica.com
