To War Or Not To War – with apologies to Shakespeare’s Hamlet
To war, or not to war: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous opponents,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand un-natural shocks
Their flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To kill, to die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
I know some of you may object to me modifying the words of the great writer William Shakespeare, butt I figure, if Big Guy can change the Constitution, also written by great men:
and the entire junior staff around here can change the meaning of words at will:
Instapundit suggests that Kerry doesn't want to call it a war because we might lose it. I actually think it's because the administration is delusional and mistakes its ability to rename things via clever word games for material reality. Which is far more troubling than simple cowardice or deceit. Certainly nothing Kerry has said in his new gig argues that he has a robust sense of reality testing.
I think I should be able to play around with a little soliloquy on the meaning of life. So again I ask: to war or not to war? Isn’t that really the question?
Please stand by for the definitive answer;
Barry will get back to you just as soon as he’s done waffling.
We’ll get back to you as soon as our overnights are in.
