5. Electing Republicans, Ma'am, Is What They Would Hope To Gain
It cannot be stated too often or too strongly that the guiding principle behind all actions of this administration is the distortion of our domestic politics: besides doing this in favor of lining the pockets of their cronies and themselves they have no goals at all, either domestic or foreign.

Their calculation in this matter is that if a new shooting war involving conventional forces in conventional and telegenic array is commenced during the campaign season, voters will be rallied to 'Republican strength on national security', and normal Democratic campaigning can be portrayed and sold as 'anti-patriotism' and 'siding with our terrorist enemies'.
