A Ticking Clockwork Orange
Yesterday, a caller to the Rush Limbaugh show, stated: "We aren't like our enemy. Our enemy is true believers that are totally committed to our destruction." And nothing exhibits that assertion better than McCain's straw dog argument concerning Bush's request that Congress codify rules of interrogation. This practical request is turned into a farce by Sen. McCain and Co. and their circular argument that has no answer except to do as the President has requested. Truly, we aren’t like our enemy because we aren’t true believers totally committed to the destruction of our enemy. Instead we are living in A Clockwork Orange, where to deprive someone of the life goal of killing infidels to obtain a heaven of virgins is considered insensitive, demeaning, and for some even criminal on our part. We have met the enemy and he is us.
