Jay Tea at Wizbang asks "What's in a name?" He's got a good point.
So, what should "we" call ourselves? That's a tough one.Yeah... what he said... You'll notice a new button the sidebar. It's just a little reminder of where I stand. I'm pro-military, pro-freedom, and yes, pro-VICTORY. (thanks to North American Patriot for the code for this!)
I thought about "pro-freedom," but I disliked it. It's too vague for my tastes. It could mean anything, and therefore means nothing. I don't like that sort of thing. We need something clearer, more precise, perhaps with some historical context that truly captures the sentiment that we didn't choose to fight this war on terror, but dammit, we're gonna win it.
And then it hit me. Let the other side be "anti-war." If they choose not to recognize that the war started a long time ago, and we've only recently started fighting back, that's their stupidity. We have more important things to worry about than their whining and kvetching.
It's a good word. It says exactly what our goal is: to win, to defeat the enemy, to stop those out to destroy us and our way of life and impose their tyrannical vision on people.
