President Bush Addresses the NationThose words above in italics IS HOW AND WHY 'Operation Iraqi Freedom' played out as it did. That is what we sold to the British, the Italians, the Spaniards, the Polish, the Danish, and even the Japanese. The post-WWII Japanese Constitution explicitly forbid the deployment of Japanese Military outside of Japan. We encouraged them to change it ''for humanitarian missions'' which is what and why they did.
The Oval Office

THE PRESIDENT: My fellow citizens, at this hour, American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq, to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger.

President Bush, working to rebuild strained U.S.-Mexico relations, promised Tuesday he would do his best to get a deeply divided U.S. Congress to change American immigration policies that are hated south of the border. "My pledge to you and your government, but more important to the people of Mexico, is I'll work as hard as I possibly can to pass comprehensive immigration reform,"Looks like it'll take ''comprehensive impeachment reform'' to stop ''comprehensive immigration reform''.
rac·ism (rā'sĭz'əm) n.Am I denying that there are different races of humans? No, of course not. I just don't belive there is nessessarily any 'superior' or 'inferior' race of human being.
1. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.

YIH, I'm not sure I answered your questions or objections.Although it was MSNBC it could have just as easily been Fox News.
I didn't see the Fox News incident you referred to, with Ann Coulter; I only read about it. But Coulter has cultivated the sexy image all along, and her trademark is her outrageous, in-your-face outspokenness. So has she just 'gone too far' this time, per Lawrence Auster's 'unprincipled exception'?
I agree that the whole vulgarity trend is a bad example for the younger generations in particular. But that has been going on for some time, and the GOP I think wants to promote it to draw in the younger people; they seem to need to prove conservatives are not stodgy and starchy and prudish. So now we have pinup 'pundits' like Coulter and the South Park brand of conservatism. The whole culture is going that way. We're losing the culture war; in fact we're surrendering, by the looks of it.
We should stand against it, but I just can't get worked up about Coulter being Coulter. I don't see her as being a representative of conservatism, especially traditionalism. She's a neocon or a South Park Republican, so whatever she does, I don't see it as representing me.
