Bush should seek support for war among Americans

Posted: Friday, September 06, 2002

War is too important to become the political guessing game it has become under the current administration.

Playing coy with the media about some things may be all right, but it is never OK to take lightly the subject of war.

It would help all American citizens, and the world, if President Bush would set his vice president straight, or the vice president would set the president straight, about how far down the track is the decision to attack Iraq. ...

Inconvenient and anti-intuitive as some in the administration may think it is, Bush needs not just an international coalition to go against Iraq, he needs the agreement of the American people, too.

At the moment he does not seem to have the first. With it or without it, he better get busy working on the second if he truly intends to take us to war.

If that is not his intention, then he should send Cheney back to his bunker.
