Mike McConnell of 700WLW thinks the American public, including him, are not being "sold" on War with Iraq. We are all being fed propaganda and he knows it. It just happens to like the propaganda or is just getting on board what he thinks will be the "winning" side in the game of "one upsmanship." He wants to say "I' told you so" to those against war when Saddam uses chemical weapons during the war. "Think of what Iraq would have done if we had not followed the blood lust of my callers," is something like he might think to say at that point. I wonder if he would get the irony. I do not know when the GOP became so hawkish, but it has not always been that way. I wonder if the hawks that called in to Mike's show would have been calling Republicans who opposed sending aid to England before we entered WWII "unamerican" for not wanting to go to war against Hitler. I am sure in hindsight they would have one opinion, but it would not be consistant with their rantings now.
