34. "The group think that goes on around here is frankly, rather discouraging.
Cali, if anything, there's plenty of arguing back and forth among all shades of Democratic Party positions. If you want to see "group think", it'll be more evident in right wing groups. Dems argue all the time about everything. It's the nature of our Party. As a Dem, you know this. So, please, I wish you wouldn't spread this kind of falsehood in the heat of an argument.

To speak to your original posting - I'm frightened when I hear about suicide bombings and beheadings. But I'll tell you this - I'm more frightened that we continue to drop 500 pound bombs in an effort to shock and awe in Iraq. The sight of little children with their limbs blown off is more than I can handle. Insurgents don't have 500 pound bombs to drop on us nor the air force carry it off. So they use what they have. War isn't born from the scent of a freshly opened history book. It's always a living hell minted in blood.
