from The Seattle Times' David Postman:
Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich says America is in World War III and President Bush should say so. In an interview in Bellevue this morning Gingrich said Bush should call a joint session of Congress the first week of September and talk about global military conflicts in much starker terms than have been heard from the president.
"We need to have the militancy that says 'We're not going to lose a city,' " Gingrich said. He talks about the need to recognize World War III as important for military strategy and political strategy.
Great. Yeah. Let's have MORE militancy. That's what we need, all right. And of course, talking about these wars and declaring that we are "not going to lose a city" will DEFINITELY make it all better! Just like saying "mission accomplished!" did, right?
