The Real Sporer: Steve King has 'em, why don't more of us?

Excerpted from this post at The Real Sporer

We are in a war, a very big war against a weird coalition of enemies
who mostly share only two goals: dominance of the global economy by
controlling the Middle Eastern oil supplies and the annihilation of
Israel. The enemy has both state and non-state actors. While all don't
share a long term desire to actually physically destroy the United
States, some do and all wish to limit American power and prosperity.
Our Founding Fathers anticipated such wars because they had all
survived the very bloody and brutal civil war that we call the War for
Independence" or the "Revolutionary War". Everything we daily see and
read about Iraq are dwarfed by the cataclysm our own first civil war.
So John Adams, John Jay, Alexander Hamilton knew something about what
it takes to win a big national war. Part of that wisdom was the
obvious need for national unity in all things diplomatic. The first
rule of victory is the value of conquest by division. A nation cannot
have a majority and minority diplomatic position-it can only have one.
Again, this is either a premise in which one believes or not. I
believe the Adams, Jay and Hamilton types probably were right-they
usually were.
