It's still the war, stupid

Most of the people who are against the war in Iraq seem to be leftists who think we should have been satisfied with our victory in Afghanistan, as if that would have been enough to send all the terrorists scurrying away in fear. But there is a growing discontent on the right, too, from those who thought Iraq was a legitimate front in the terror war but fear the Bush administration has become so focused on it, and in the wrong way, that it is no longer able to convince the American people that the danger is still there. The next presidential race might, in fact, be won by the candidate making the most compelling case for a return to the illusion or normalcy. The author of the linked-to article says it might take another terrorist attack on the scale of 9/11 to wake Americans up again. I pray he is wrong but fear he is right.
