People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
"An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it." - Gandhi
And then we get to the "every one knows" argument. What every one knows is, somehow, wrong a surprising amount of the time, as it is in this case. Remember, it was a republican who came up with the phrase "peace dividend".

Remember, it was a republican who came up with the phrase "peace dividend".The Democrats 'Soft' JihadistOn Sunday, Democratic delegates convening in Denver were prayed over by representatives of various faiths. One stood out: Ingrid Mattson, president of the Islamic Society of North America. With this choice, Barak Obama's campaign has committed a strategic error of the first order.
After all, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) has been identified by the Department of Justice not only as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood - a global Islamist movement with the stated mission in America of "destroying Western civilization from within." Worse yet, it has also been named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the United States' largest alleged terrorism financing conspiracy.
Like other Brotherhood operations, ISNA's purpose is to promote what might be called "soft jihad" - the task of steadily insinuating the brutally repressive and subversive program the Islamists call Shariah through da'wa, proselytizing and social networking.
The more one learns about Dr. Mattson and her organization, the more questions will be raised about Barak Obama's judgment and that of his party in affording them a prominent role in the 2008 Democratic convention. For example:
FOXNews.com - Lieberman Calls Dem Opponents Soft Spendthrifts - Politics | Republican Party | Democratic Party | Political SpectrumPHOENIX — Democratic presidential candidate Joe Lieberman (search) unleashed a torrent of attacks Wednesday, but this time, not all were directed at President Bush.
Much of the Connecticut senator's ire was aimed at his top rivals.
"The anti-tax-cut, soft-on-defense, big-spending Democrats will take the Democratic Party to the edge and maybe over," Lieberman told Fox News while campaigning at a state-of-the-art job training center in Phoenix
Democratic StrategistAfter all, Democrats’ “soft on defense” image played a key role in driving millions of blue collar voters (as well as a small but influential band of Cold War liberals later called neoconservatives) into the GOP’s arms. With the possible exception of race, no issue did more to perpetuate the Republican near-stranglehold on the White House—which began in 1968 and seems to have ended in 2008.
I could go on for hours, but I think I've made my point.

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
No, it's not "true." How many terrorist attacks have there been on U.S. soil since Barack Obama has been President? Well then....there you go...Libs are very strong on national security and defense.Maybe it's true, only Bush could keep us safe... everyone knows Libs are very weak on defence.
