News items and opinion 9/29/2004 

George Will writes of what Kerry needs to do at Thurday's debate. He's right as far as America doesn't understand Kerry's plan for Iraq, but is curiously an incurious journalist in that he can't find out hiumself what Kerry's plan is. He's given speeches, issued press releases, and on his website in a easily digestible fashion, he lists at least a dozen things he will change or start to do in Iraq.

But Will is right - Kerry needs to make himself heard above the din of the Republican noise machine.

Meanwhile, under the current administration cars continue to blow up and the insurgency continues in Iraq. And 30% of our soldiers who have been called back from the Individual Ready Reserve to active duty in Iraq or Afghanistan have failed to show up on time. Maybe what they need is a secret weapon - perhaps a flaming human cannonball. That would scare the hell out of the insurgents.

As far as what the Republican's plan for fighting terror is, they suggest deporting undesirables to countries where they will be tortured. Actually, this idea is not new - it's already been field tested.
