I'd like to welcome Bill "Xoff" Christofferson as an occasional contributer to Uppity Wisconsin.
The Superior Daily Telegram has it totally backward in its editorial entitled, "Let's Not Show Divisiveness During War."
Our enemies apparently don't read the newspapers, which report an almost total collapse in public support for the war. The public opinion polls, and the results of the November election, apparently have escaped the attention of the Iraqi insurgents.
But if members of Congress speak up or act to put an end to this total failure in Iraq, the enemy might find out the nation is divided, the Telegram says.
It's actually not divided. The people of this country want the war to end. And the people we elected in November have an obligation to speak up loudly and forcefully to try to bring an end to the war, not "silently share their anti-war feelings with Bush."
