Eden Hill Journal

Comments, dreams, stories, and rantings from a middle-aged native of Maine living on a shoestring and a prayer in the woods of Maine. My portion of the family farm is to be known as Eden Hill Farm just because I want to call it that and because that's the closest thing to the truth that I could come up with. If you enjoy what I write, email me or make a comment. If you enjoy Eden Hill, come visit.

World War

"We have to level with the American people," said Sen. George V. Voinovich, Ohio Republican. "This is another world war."
From this article in the Washington Times covering Condoleezza Rice's appearance before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee this week:

It would appear, according to the write-up, that the US has embarked on an effort to reshape the entire Middle East.
"Unless we commit to changing the nature of the Middle East, and if we tire and decide that we are going to withdraw and leave the people of the Middle East to despair, I can assure you that the people of the United States are going to live in insecurity and fear for many, many decades to come," Miss Rice said.
"We had to make a decision that we were going to go after the root cause of what caused September 11," she said. "So what I'm describing to you, Senator, is not what you voted for in the war resolution, but the broader strategy of the administration."
To me, this would seem like an impeachable offense, to appropriate the American military into a World War without the consent of Congress. Why does it not seem that way to conservatives?
